A Love Supreme : The Creation of John Coltrane's Classic Album, Paperback

A Love Supreme : The Creation of John Coltrane's Classic Album Paperback


A copiously researched study of saxophone legend John Coltrane's signature album.

Among the images published here for the first time are Coltrane's hand-written poem "A Love Supreme" that was printed in the original album and in-studio photographs of Coltrane and his sidemen recording "A Love Supreme" in 1964.

Written with the full co-operation of the Coltrane family and featuring the voices of musicians, producers and writers of the 1960s, Kahn has also unearthed rare, unpublished interviews with Coltrane and bassist Jimmy Garrison.

The book also features commentary from contemporary music stars including Carlos Santana, Bono, Phil Lesh, Patti Smith, Ravi Shankar and Steve Reich.
