John Coltrane records

Added: 2008-02-27

A Love Supreme is a jazz album recorded by John Coltrane's quartet on December 9, 1964 at the Van Gelder studio in Englewood Cliffs, New Jersey. The album is a four-part suite, broken up into tracks: “Acknowledgement” (which contains the famous mantra that gave the suite its name), “Resolution,” “Pursuance,” and “Psalm.” It is intended to be a spiritual album, broadly representative of a personal struggle for purity. The final track corresponds to the wording of a devotional poem Coltrane included in the liner notes.
