A Love Supreme is the copiously researched and attractively designed study of saxophone legend John Coltrane's signature album. Among the images published here for the first time are Coltrane's hand-written poem 'A Love Supreme' that was printed in the original album and in-studio photographs of Coltrane and his sidemen recording 'A Love Supreme' in 1964. Written with the full cooperation of the Coltrane family and featuring the voices of musicians, producers, and writers of the '60s, Kahn has also unearthed rare, unpublished interviews with Coltrane and bassist Jimmy Garrison. It also features commentary from contemporary music stars including Carlos Santana, Bono, Phil Lesh, Patti Smith, Ravi Shankar and Steve Reich.
