John Coltrane – A Love Supreme (1964) (full album)

A Love Supreme is a studio album recorded by John Coltrane´s quartet in December 1964 and released by Impulse! Records in February 1965. It is generally considered to be among Coltrane’s greatest works, as it melded the hard bop sensibilities of his early career with the free jazz style he adopted later.

The quartet recorded the album in one session on December 9, 1964, at the Van Gelder Studio in Englewood Cliffs, New Jersey. Coltrane´s home in Dix Hills, Long Island, has been suggested as the site of inspiration for A Love Supreme. [source]
