american soul

Let these two tracks from John Coltrane give you strength to battle through the storms raining down on the once Land Of The Free.

Trane’s ‘Love Supreme’ was spiritually and artistically monumental, but the times and his probing nature pushed him to keep searching. Later in 1965 he made “Transition.”

By his death in 1967 the transition had been made. But like ‘Hope and Change,’ it’s not always a good thing. Within a year, Dr. King would be dead and the Welfare State was born.

Not everyone will appreciate the beauty of Trane’s late period. I just love it, but I see the wisdom of returning to A Love Supreme for a nation losing it’s soul.
