Produced with the cooperation of his widow Alice Coltrane, the documentary focuses on the later period of Coltrane’s work where he explored themes of Eastern spirituality. I’m not a fan of organised religion but I think Coltrane’s conception of God is beautiful. If you haven’t listened to A Love Supreme all the way through do so before watching.
A Love Supreme was only performed once in its entirety, in Antibes France in the summer of 1965 – here’s a video.
