Newly-discovered live recording of Coltrane performing A Love Supreme
"The music on A Love Supreme: Live in Seattle is sublime in every sense of the word, without a trace of monotony. Its release is as significant an event in jazz-historical terms as any archival gem unearthed in the last decade or more." — NPR Music
This newly discovered live recording of a performance of the Love Supreme suite is a revelation. Recorded at The Penthouse in Seattle on October 2, 1965, at the end of a weeklong residency by Joe Brazil, one of Coltrane's trusted friends, this recording transports the listener to a prime seat for piece of musical history.
Brazil used the club system, two microphones and an Ampex reel-to-reel, and then preserved the tapes for nearly half a century, as if guarding a Holy Grail. They were found in his archive after his death in 2008.
