A Love Supreme is a 1965 studio album by American jazz saxophonist and bandleader John Coltrane. He recorded the album with his quartet — featuring pianist McCoy Tyner, bassist Jimmy Garrison, and drummer Elvin Jones — in one session on December 9, 1964, at Van Gelder Studio in Englewood Cliffs, New Jersey.
A Love Supreme was released by Impulse! Records in January 1965 and became a top-selling album for Coltrane, as well as one of jazz’s most critically acclaimed recordings. Since then, it has often been viewed as one of the greatest albums of all time, a deeply spiritual work, and Coltrane’s masterpiece.
