  • üç-dört yıldır yükselmekte olan free jazz'in kapısından modal açıyla bakan bir coltrane gördüğümüz impulse! records'tan 9 aralık 1965 tarihinde çıkmış leziz john coltrane albümü. farklı yorumları, farklı listeleri bir kenara koyarsak dört şarkılık bir devinim, bir başka caz devrimidir a love supreme.

    kanımca en iyi özetlerden biri olarak, joshua redman'ın yorumunu belirtmek gerekiyor:

    "coltrane, in a certain way, is a paradox, because he is one of the most elusive and one of the most uncompromising artists - one of the purist artists in the history of jazz. you can't get purer than coltrane. everything that he did was all about music and all about the artistry and spiritual quest. no concessions were made to commercial issues or even performance issues - issues of audience satisfaction. yet, at the same time, he is one of the most compelling, and in some ways one of the most accessible artists in the history of jazz. there are people who own coltrane albums, and those are the only jazz albums they own or they are the only jazz albums that they like. i think he was accessible and compelling precisely because he was so uncompromising . the integrity and purity that he had was so apparent to people. you could hear it in the music, you could see it in photographs. all you have to do is look at the cover to a love supreme. it's beautiful and accessible in its intensity, and the sense of resolve and devotion is so visible on his face."*

    albert ayler'ın coltrane'i peygamber ilan ettiği albüm a love supreme. giant steps'in yıkıcılığı ve my favorite things'in sürrealizmi buluşmuş; diyecek hiçbir şey yok!

    belki de, redman'ın anlattıklarından çıkacak özet yine o satırlarda:

    "you can't get purer than coltrane."

    edit: pharoah sanders'ın o karakteristik tonunu ve numaralarını kimden esinlenerek ortaya çıkardığını merak ediyorsanız, a love supreme'i dinleyiniz. fark etmemenize imkan yok!
