I have two announcements to make and both will only expand your listening choice here on Jazz Con Class. First of all I am adding and featuring John Coltrane’s “A Love Supreme” to the schedule, check for times here. It will remain in the Jazz Con Class playlist rotation indefinitely, just as I did with the “Blues Bag” album. More on this inspirational album below.
I am also happy to announce a brand new playlist and I named it the 3G Playlist. It contains songs that I have not played yet here, so again, take a look at the schedule link on top of the page for play time. Make yourself familiar with this link because I am always adding and updating it.
More on Album:
A LOVE SUPREME is the essential example of the genius of John Coltrane. In what has become the apotheosis of jazz music, this eminently accessible work bridges the gap between music and spirituality, between art and life. With the ultimate incarnation of the jazz quartet, Coltrane brings together all of his turbulent elements into a cohesive paean to spirituality, one which is fully appreciable by the uninitiated.
A LOVE SUPREME is a 33-minute work divided into four movements. “Acknowledgment” starts the album with a heraldic summoning from Coltrane’s tenor saxophone, full and joyous, which approximates the tone of the prayer he provides in the album’s liner notes. The solo that follows reveals an artist whose spiritual depth and emotional urgency are matched by an adherence to logic and a resolve to achieve one goal above all–communication. Each simple musical statement is either followed by a motivic development or countered with a conversational response. Coltrane climaxes with a distilled four-note motif echoing the album’s title, which he plays with by sequencing it through a wide array of tonalities. Finally, the band comes in, reiterating this idea, chanting the mantra “A Love Supreme.”…..Learn More
