A Tribute to John Coltrane and His Jazz Composition, Love Supreme
It reverberates an impression from the Yom Kippur (Day of Atonement) prayers of Malchiot, (Kingship, acknowledging the Divine Presence), Zichronot, (Remembrance of all which is significant) and Shofarot (the blowing of the ram’s horn to awaken the conscience).
Love Supreme can be witnessed as a musical offering for the last day of Sukkot (holiday of Tabernacles) on which the nations of the world, in the future, in unity, laud the Divine Presence in all living beings of all religions.
God’s presence is heard and seen everywhere.
John Coltrane in his album, Love Supreme
Divides his “Psalm” into four distinct parts:
“Acknowledgment”, “Resolution”, “Pursuance”
And “Love Supreme” is its culmination.
It encircles its listeners in jazz, as prayer,
as does Bach to accompany worship;
For Coltrane did write, “There is no Other“.
Just as every cell of the body
Reflects the comprehensive DNA
In each person, Coltrane pulsates the sublime
Cosmic temple music, heard by the soul,
Composed as an offering in gratitude
To the Divine Conductor of it all.
