The John Coltrane Quartet with McCoy Tyner, Jimmy Garrison and Elvin Jones was formed in 1960 and was at the peak of its powers for these concerts from the Antibes Jazz Festival on July 26 & 27, 1965. What made this appearance so important was the first and only public performance of his masterpiece A Love Supreme, which had recently become an instant and influential hit in the jazz world. The DVD opens with "Naima," a searingly intense "Ascension" and "Impressions," while part one and half of part two of the A Love Supreme suite close out this historic film.
Two complete consecutive concerts in France by the classic John Coltrane Quartet, the first was taped in Antibes the day after the quartet's well known performance of a Love Supreme, while the second comes from the famous Salle Pleyel. This excellent double CD commemorates two concerts the Coltrane Quartet played in France 27 and 28 July 1965. The July 27 session was at Juan Les Pins, the day after the only live rendition of A Love Supreme, now on Impulse, the other at Salle Pleyel. Format: Audio CDVerified Purchase.
John William Coltrane (September 23, 1926 – July 17, 1967) was an American jazz saxophonist and composer. Working in the bebop and hard bop idioms early in his career, Coltrane helped pioneer the use of modes and was at the forefront of free jazz. He led at least fifty recording sessions and appeared on many albums by other musicians, including trumpeter Miles Davis and pianist Thelonious Monk. Over the course of his career, Coltrane's music took on an increasingly spiritual dimension
