“Never again will Johnny C, A Love Supreme be found.”
I’ve just started reading Tim Keller’s new book Every Good Endeavour: Connecting Your Work To God’s Plan For The World.
It starts off with the following quote from John Coltrane’s liner notes to A Love Supreme:
During the year 1957, I experienced, by the grace of God, a spiritual awakening which was to lead me to a richer, fuller, more productive life. At that time, in gratitude, I humbly asked to be given the means and privilege to make others happy through music. I feel this has been granted through his grace. ALL PRAISE TO GOD….
This album is a humble offering to him. An attempt to say “THANK YOU GOD” through our work, even as we do in our hearts and with our tongues. May He help and strengthen all men in every good endeavour.
