Fans of American jazz legend John Coltrane will be happy to hear that a 56-year old tape of his live performance of “A Love Supreme” has surfaced.
Impulse Records has acquired the only known recording of Coltrane performing the song in Seattle in the fall of 1965 and plans to release it and 12 more new songs.
At the time of the recording, Coltrane was finding an escape from the confines of modern jazz and was improvising on the level of sound, as much as notes.
Coltrane died in 1967 at the age of 40.
The full album will be released October 8th.
