A Love Supreme
John Coltrane
Impulse
By James Calemine

Born September 23, 1930, John Coltrane grew up in Hamlet, North Carolina. He moved to Philadelphia after high school. Coltrane spent a year in the Navy, and in 1947 he joined Dizzy Gillespie's band where he stayed until 1951. Coltrane's lyrical saxophone resonates a distinct, unmistakable sound.

He apprenticed with band leaders Earl Bostick, Eddie Vinson, Jimmy Heath and Johnny Hodges. Coltrane later performed and recorded with Miles Davis, Thelonious Monk, Red Garland, Duke Ellington, Elvin Jones and many others.

Coltrane's career was brief, but prolific. He remains a cornerstone jazz musician even when his deep and wide improvisation often drew criticism. Coltrane's peaceful demeanor and musical virtuosity commanded an iconic presence. In the late 50s he kicked heroin and recorded some of his greatest work. Coltrane's spiritual pursuits allowed him to augment droning ragas, mantras, southern blues and astral jazz into his compositions.

Classic Coltrane releases include A Love Supreme, Giant Steps, Interstellar Space, My Favorite Things, Blue Trane, Crescent, and Live At the Village Vanguard to name a few. It's difficult to pin down one John Coltrane studio recording and say this is THE ONE, but if you had to do it A Love Supreme contends as a strong choice.

Recorded in December of 1964, with his classic quartet--Elvin Jones, Jimmy Garrison and McCoy Tyner--Coltrane would only live a little over two more years. He died of liver at the age of 40.

On Love Supreme Coltrane breaks down the 33-minute album into four parts: Acknowledgement, Resolution, Pursuance, and Psalm. The music, for the most part evokes a reflective, peaceful mood, but often Coltrane's talent lies in his ability to hit a certain note and evoke a dark or eerie emotion heard in any listening environment.

Coltrane's meditative theme in his music mirrored his spiritual convictions and pursuits that inspired this jazz classic. Before one ventures into some of Coltrane's more dissonant recordings, A Love Supreme remains a vital introductory source to hear John Coltrane's immense talent.

A ugg boots clearance recent survey found that one out of five Americans teenage or older want an iPad. No wonder Apple is selling three million iPads a month. It's the fastest-selling single product in the history of consumer electronics. Most buyers are choosing an iPad as a supplement to their current computers -- for watching movies in bed, like I do, or reading books in my easy chair when there's nothing good on TV ugg boots clearance. The iPad pretty much has the personal side of computing covered. But what about the computer side? What about the tasks you do on your laptop or on your desktop computer ugg boots clearance? But I'm convinced that many of you would find the iPad a delightful replacement for a typical laptop computer, whether a Windows PC or Mac, if you mostly use a laptop for three typical functions -- e-mail, social networking (through Facebook, for example) and Web browsing ugg boots clearance. What about occasional word processing? Apple's word processor, called Pages, is outstanding on the iPad. (A bonus: It also works easily with Microsoft Word documents, both reading them and saving them.) If you need software that can show and create PowerPoint presentations, iPad software called Keynote can do that nicely. There's even an Excel-compatible program called Numbers ugg boots clearance. All three of these productivity programs -- called apps -- sell for only $10 each. Getting something equivalent to Microsoft Office for only $30 is surely a steal ugg boots clearance. There are many, either free or a couple of dollars, at the App Store ugg boots outlet. Could an iPad be your only computer? Not for long. It gets updates via free software called iTunes running on a standard computer. When you plug the iPad into the computer using a USB cable, iTunes transfers the updates to your iPad ugg boots outlet. (iTunes is also used to add music, books, podcasts, university lectures, TV shows and movies to an iPad.) But if my experience is a guide, the iPad can function well as a replacement for a laptop. If you buy one, be sure to get the Keyboard Dock and the Camera Connection Kit. Photos look spectacular on the 10-inch screen ugg boots clearance.
