“During the year 1957,” writes Coltrane in the sleeve notes, “I experienced, by the grace of God, a spiritual awakening… This album is a humble offering to Him.” A suite in four parts, “A Love Supreme” resounds with sincere and heartfelt yearning, from the opening movement, “Acknowledgment,” with its hypnotic polyrhythms and devotional chant of the album title, through the deeply swinging hard bop of “Resolution” and “Pursuance,” through to the final stately sermon of “Psalm.” The birth of Coltrane’s ever-deepening quest for meaning, this timeless declaration of universalist faith remains the essential founding document of spiritual jazz.
