Writing Music: A Love Supreme by John Coltrane

By Pauly

This was the first jazz album I ever owned. My college friend Schanzer gave me a copy on cassette. He played the sax and was an encyclopedia on jazz. A Love Supreme was my first introduction to Coltrane. I must have listened to this at least once a day during the summer of 1994.

Twenty years later, I'm still listening to Coltrane's A Love Supreme (1964). I expanded my Coltrane collection since college, but when I'm bogged down in a big writing session (like today), I bring out the big dogs like A Love Supreme.
