JOHN COLTRANE

 

" A LOVE SUPREME "

 

Ho sempre " subito " un'attrazione naturale per il Sax, uno strumento caldo e profondo,
l'unico in grado di appassionarmi al punto di desiderare di averne uno e di saperlo suonare.
Cosi' ho cominciato a comprare CD di grandi sassofonisti come Charly Parker e John Coltrane.
Quest'ultimo e' l'artista che piu' mi ha colpito, forse perche' nel suo modo di suonare non
c'e' solo l'improvvisazione del Jazz, c'e' una voglia di sperimentare e di stupire,
di comunicare con Dio e con gli uomini. C'e' stato un perido, tra il 1957 e il 1964 in cui
Coltrane ha cercato di fondere religione e musica in una cosa sola.
L'apice di questo percorso e' " A Love Supreme " che oltre ai brani musicali contiene
uno scritto bellissimo, una preghiera, un'inno, una lode che di seguito trascrivo.
E' in ogni caso uno di quei CD che vale la pena di comprare e di ascoltare.

A Love Supreme

 

I will do all I can to be worthy of Thee O Lord.
It all has to do with it
Thank you God.
Peace.
There is none other.
God is. It is so beautiful.
Thank you God. God is all.
Help us to resolve our fears and weaknesses.
Thank you God.
In You all things are possible.
We know. God made us so.
Keep your eye on God.
God is. He always was. He always will be.
No matter what...it is God.
He is gracious and merciful.
It is most important that I know Thee.
Words, sounds, speech, men, memory, thoughts,
fears and emotions-time-all related...
all made from one...all made in one.
Blessed be His name.
Thought waves-heat waves-all vibrations-
all paths lead to God. Thank you God.
His way...it is so lovely...it is gracious.
It is merciful-thank you God.
One thought can produce millions of vibrations
and they all go back to God...everything does.
Thank you God.
Have no fear...belive...thank you God.
The universe has many wonders. God is all.
His way...it is so wonderful.
Thoughts-deeds-vibrations, etc.
They all go back to God and He cleanses all.
He is gracious and merciful...thank you God.
Glory to God...God is so alive.
God is.
God loves.
May I be acceptable in Thy sight.
We are all one in His grace.
The fact that we do exist is acknowledgement.
of Thee O Lord.
Thank you God.
God will wash away all our tears...
He always has...
He always will.
Seek Him everyday. In all ways seek God everyday.
Let us sing all songs to God.
To whom all praise is due...praise God.
No road is an easy one, but they all
go back to God.
Whit all we share God.
It is all with God.
It is all with Thee.
Obey the Lord.
Blessed is He.
We are from one thing...the will of God...
thank you God.
I have seen God-I have seen ungodly-
none can be greater-none can compare to God.
Thank you God.
He will remake us...He always has and He
always will.
It is true-blessed be His name-thank you God.
so gently we hardly feel it...yet,
it is our everything.
Thank you God.

ELATION-ELEGANCE-EXALTATION-

All from God.
Thank you God. Amen.
