    Does anyone know the name of that really late avan-garde Coltrane album with "Love" in the title but came after "A Love Supreme". Please excuse the vagueness but this is all i remember, really excellent stuff.

    To my knowledge there is no such thing. Are you sure it had "love" in the title? If so then all I can think of are the live "A Love Supreme" releases.

  3. You can look here for John Coltrane albums, but there is nothing other than Love Supreme with Love in the title. :confused:

    Great sig btw :p

    Lolz sorry guys now that I think of it there was no "love" in the title, but I think it was one of his very last albums and it was definently after a love supreme.

    If you are interested in some 'late' period Coltrane-
    Ascension, 'Trane's answer to Ornette's Free Jazz, is a must!

    Meditations...a must.

    Interstellar Space, an album of free-form duets with drummer Rashied Ali, is a must.

    Transition is also cool...the title track's solo is like Hendrix on the tenor sax.

    Could it have been "Live" instead of "Love"? I keep going back to "Live in Seattle"... love that album.

    Oops... you found the answer. Still, check out Live in Seattle if you get a chance!

    Coltrane did make an album called "John Coltrane Plays for Lovers." I'm certain the style in this album, really smooth and sweet, is not at all what you are after. In fact, I LIKE this album...that fact alone should be a turn off to most fans of Coltrane's more typical work.

    ...nothing's "typical" about Coltrane's work. ;)
    Look at Miles...what would you consider his "typical work"? My point is this: It's difficult, if not impossible, to label certain musicians(like Miles & 'Trane)

    True, Coltrane's late period/New Thing stuff was 'out there'; still, the guy's ballad chops were also intact.
