John Coltrane | The Making of A Love Supreme [hosted by Mos Def]

The Making of A Love Supreme: Part 1 + Part 2

2(t)wo days ago
WEAA 88.9 FM, Morgan State University's radio station, aired The Making of A Love Supreme hosted by Mos Def. Within a 5(f)ive minute car ride the documentary bewitched me to archive and blog the audio.

A Love Supreme is undoubtedly one of the most influential, spiritual and important jazz albums ever recorded. And the inside story on just how this album came into being, as told by many of those who were there, is a story that makes for two great hours of radio.

The Making of A Love Supreme is a 2(t)wo-hour exploration of Coltrane's 1964 masterpiece that aired on WNYC 93.9 FM via WBGO (public radio stations had between Nov. 1, 2002 and Oct. 31, 2003 to broadcast TMOALS) answers, among other inquiries:

  • How did Coltrane with drummer Elvin Jones, pianist McCoy Tyner and bassist Jimmy Garrison accomplish this landmark album in one day in a studio in New Jersey?
  • Why did Coltrane write a poem to accompany it?
  • Why did they only perform the entire suite live one time?
  • Why was Coltrane's music politicized by the world?
