Few albums in the canon of popular music have had the influence, resonance, and endurance of John Coltrane's 1965 classic "A Love Supreme" - a record that proved jazz was a fitting medium for spiritual exploration and for the expression of the sublime. Ashley Kahn tells the story of the genesis, creation, and aftermath of this classic recording. Featuring interviews with more than one hundred musicians, producers, friends, and family members; unpublished interviews with Coltrane and bassist Jimmy Garrison; and scores of never before seen photographs. It reveals a portrait of the creation of the album, artfully balancing biography, cultural context, and musical analysis.
