Ashley Kahn Launches A Love Supreme Web Site

The title of jazz writer Ashley Kahn’s new book, A Love Supreme: The Story of John Coltrane’s Signature Album (Viking), pretty much sums up what it’s about, but if you require more information, check out the book’s Web site. Within it you’ll find pictures of Coltrane, Elvin Jones, McCoy Tyner and Jimmy Garrison in the studio, famous musicians’ thoughts on the album, information on an upcoming radio program based on the book to be hosted by hip-hopper Mos Def and other A Love Supreme-associated goodies. What I figure will get you surfing to the site, however, are the video clips. Watch as Trane and his boys play “A Love Supreme” live in 1965-an amazing clip almost two whole minutes long! Witness greatness as Trane assembles his horn and begins to practice scales-in color! See for yourself:
