There's more to life than books you know-

But not much more.

Got off work early because it was slow, and was able to actually GO INTO THE LIBRARY AND NOT RUSH. Wonderful.

John Coltrane, December 1964 by Chuck Stewart

On December 9, 1964, John Coltrane led a quartet that featured pianist McCoy Tyner, drummer Elvin Jones and bassist Jimmy Garrison into Rudy Van Gelder’s studio in Englewood Cliffs, New Jersey, where countless jazz recording sessions were held in the 1950s and ’60s. 

That day nearly 50 years ago the band recorded a Coltrane composition titled A Love Supreme, a profound expression of his spiritual awakening divided into four movements—“Acknowledgement,” “Resolution,” “Pursuance,” “Psalm.” For its soaring ambition, flawless execution and raw power, it was hailed as a ground breaking piece of music when it was released in February 1965 and is now considered one of the most important recordings of the 20th century
