A Love Supreme, Pt. IV - Psalm
Coltrane pulls off an epic aural poem to man's place in God's plan. A Love Supreme goes from free jazz to hard bop to genre-of-one gospel music, and yet he brings you into the moving work instead of using the piece as an exercise in ego. The deluxe edition offers alternate takes that are fascinating to hear a few times but add little emotional impact to the complete experience of the brilliant album.
