A Love Supreme

Kent Nussey

ISBN 1-894469-11-9

Omar Snow is a struggling musicologist trying to finish a book of jazz biographies about Thelonius Monk, Charles Mingus and John Coltrane. When he reaches the Coltrane section strange things start happening around him and to him. Coltrane’s music, or some other new urgency in Omar’s life, triggers a series of ecstatic visions that lead him down a path he never dreamed existed. A Love Supreme is a peculiarly charged disquisition on the relation between music, solitude, and romanticism. It not only remarks poignantly on where our culture has most recently been, but likewise hints at a new sensibility that may yet become the hallmark of the new century.
