On the album's 50th anniversary

Verve Music Group have announced details of a 50th anniversary edition of John Coltrane‘s A Love Supreme. The Complete Masters – including every take, recorded conversation and overdub from the two-day recording session in 1964 – will be released on November 6.

The box also includes the reportedly “long-lost session reels” documenting the second day session, featuring Coltrane, Elvin Jones, Jimmy Garrison and McCoy Tyner, along with Archie Shepp and Dr. Art Davis.

The album will be released in two formats: a three-CD “Super Deluxe Edition” that includes Coltrane’s July 1965 performance at the Festival Mondial du Jazz Antibes, with an introduction by Carlos Santana. A two-CD set features the original album, along with mono reference versions of two tracks, and seven unreleased performances. There’s also a 32-page booklet featuring an essay written by music historian Ashley Kahn, rare photos, and Coltrane’s sketches and written works that underpinned the album.
