“No road is an easy one, but they all go back to God.” –John Coltrane, A Love Supreme Liner Notes 1964
A Love Supreme, jazz saxophonist John Coltrane’s 1965 modal jazz album, is often understood as an expression of the composer’s faith. Jazz historian Lewis Porter notes that in the motif for which the composition is named, Coltrane changes keys 12 times–playing the theme in every possible key. He believes that this is reinforcing Coltrane’s message that all roads lead to God.
