If you know and love John Coltrane's quintessential "A love supreme", then you also need to hear the version included in this performance, recorded live in Antibes in 1965. Following on from the cathartic experiment that was "Ascension", this interpretation is much freer than the original as well as being fifteen minutes longer.
The group (Coltrane's "classic" quartet with McCoy Tyner on piano, Jimmy Garrison on bass and Elvin Jones on drums) are all on excellent form and although they adhere to the same four-part structure of the studio recording, things start to get really interesting during the "Pursuance" section which culminates in a frenetic duet between Coltrane and Jones. Then, in an extended "Psalm", Trane breaks free from the self-imposed restrictions of the original to produce a blistering exploratory coda....
The recording quality isn't perfect, but the excellence of the playing more than makes up for that, and nearly half an hour of "Impressions" and "Naima" completes this wonderful set.
