I only listened to A Love Supreme the other night, and all I can say is WOW

I have Ascension but don't really like it. Much prefer Ornette Coleman.

I would, however, like to hear A Love Supreme. If anyone could upload it, I'd be quite grateful.

I just bought his Giant Steps album.
It isn't one of his best works but it's pretty . . . mellowish I suppose.
(check that out)

Giant Steps is an incredible album.
The title track is a tune that stretched the harmonic language of jazz. It is an incredibly hard tune to solo on. You should listen to it several times in a row to get your brain around it. I would not say that tune is mellow.
Coltrane was always pushing jazz to new places and this album is an example of that.

Naima is also one of the prettiest jazz tunes of all time.

How many times have you listened to the album?

It is a wonderful album. It's somewhere in the sharing thread if anyone wants it I'll try to find it.
