"A LOVE SUPREME" IS MORE THAN ONE TYPE OF JAZZ

The performance of “A Love Supreme” by John Coltrane told a story in 1965. The music started off on a slow pace and became more upbeat as time progressed. There were elements of cool jazz when the music was at a slower tempo (Part I- Acknowledgement). There were elements of free jazz through the more upbeat and chaotic sounds (Part II- Resolution). Traditional jazz was sprinkled in there as well (Part IV- Psalm).  As a listener, one can hear the piano, drums, saxophone, and bass. The listener gets lost in the music very easily, because of the delivery. Coltrane is a gifted jazz musician who has the ability to take his audience on a journey just by playing a few notes.
