Concerning Coltrane, A Love Supreme
was just the beginning.
One of my favourite albums is ALS's follow-up, Meditations
I've heard there's a "First Meditations", as well, but I'm unfamiliar with this recording.
There's also Innerstellar Space
and Stellar Regions
...and let's not foget those classic Village Vanguard recordings.
