Watch | The World According to John Coltrane

Posted on

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.

I’d like to point out to people the divine in a musical language that transcends words. I want to speak to their souls.

  A Love Supreme was only performed once in its entirety, in Antibes France in the summer of 1965 – here’s a video.
