Here's one of Coltrane's masterworks, A Love Supreme, in its entirety. Consisting of three movements, each has its own distinct style that showcases Coltrane's talent as a composer and performer, as well as the talents of his band as improvisers. It's full of intertwining harmonic and rhythmic sequences interspersed with solos that make up what we know as "A Love Supreme." Since its release, it has widely been hailed as a Giant Step forward for jazz and music alike, combining the avant-garde with the traditional to create a truly great work.
