I love everything about this, most especially how John Coltrane BEGINS his solo at the intensity level that many players would be happy to peak at. Then he goes up from there.

Elvin's playing just makes me laugh, too good

The music of A Love Supreme opened my mind, touched my spirit and filled my soul like no other music I'd listened to before (or since). The first time I played this recording I can honestly say it was a deeply religious experience.

John Saunders

Thank you Lady duck same here what a powerful and spiritual experience

I love Jimmy Garrison's double bass solo in the end. This recording is bombastic during it's introduction and then it gradually becomes aggressive with Coltrane's solo. Followed by McCoy Tyner's piano improvisation and recapluates back to Elvin Jones' hard bop drumming. Alas, it finishes with Garrison's double bass playing and Jones' drumming. I view this compostion as a metaphor for life, it's aggressive and you must pursue inspite of all the hardships or turmoils. Even in the ending of your life of old age, you still need to embrace what's coming to you: Death. And slowly but inevitably, it'll happen, but at least you've gave life your all. Hence, pursuance.

Your interpretation is like mine, I posted this for Kobe Bryant the day after his passing.
