Can't forget Sun Ship. Or any of his other albums.

Anyway, I read this article recently and this is as good a place as any to post it, it really reflects the perfection of Coltrane: The Story Of 'A Love Supreme' : NPR

Quote:
Lewis Porter heads the masters program in jazz history and research at Rutgers University-Newark. He's the author of John Coltrane: His Life and Music. Porter says that simple idea culminating in the first movement with an unprecedented verbal chant by Coltrane forms the foundation of the entire suite. It's a theme Coltrane consciously uses in subtle and careful ways throughout A Love Supreme. For example, toward the end of part one, "Acknowledgement," Coltrane plays the riff in every key.

"Coltrane's more or less finished his improvisation, and he just starts playing the 'Love Supreme' motif, but he changes the key another time, another time, another time. This is something very unusual. It's not the way he usually improvises. It's not really improvised. It's something that he's doing. And if you actually follow it through, he ends up playing this little 'Love Supreme' theme in all 12 possible keys," says Porter. "To me, he's giving you a message here. First of all, he's introduced the idea. He's experimented with it. He's improvised with it with great intensity. Now he's saying it's everywhere. It's in all 12 keys. Anywhere you look, you're going to find this 'Love Supreme.' He's showing you that in a very conscious way on his saxophone. So to me, he's really very carefully thought about how he wants to present the idea."

In all his music and even more so as he gets further along in his career and thus more avant-garde, people might think it's random but what he's actually doing is running a central theme through cycles and extremely complicated but very systematic rearrangements. He does this at such incredible speeds that other composers can only mimic what he was doing with computers. At the same time, he wasn't bothered with any sort of acrobatics but rather exploring the natural patterns of the universe through an auditory medium. He's worshipped as a God because what he created has more in common with nature than art.
