Classic Album Sundays Sydney presents John Coltrane: A Love Supreme

  • Classic Album Sundays, Sydney's all-vinyl hi-fi listening party, returns to the Bordello room at World Bar for an intimate night to celebrate one of the greatest albums ever recorded. February is traditionally jazz month at Classic Album Sundays worldwide, so we decided to feature one of the most requested albums from a true master, John Coltrane's A Love Supreme. Audio menu: - Turntables: Roksan Radius 5 - Cartridge: Ortofon 2M Bronze - Amp: Roksan K3 (http://www.whathifi.com/roksan/k3/review) - Speakers: Kef C30 Host: Jim Poe (Deep House Australia) Thanks to invaluable support from Bondi Beach Radio About A Love Supreme: Coltrane’s masterpiece was released in January 1965 on Impulse! Records. The album was a hit at the time and is still viewed as not only one of the greatest jazz albums ever made, but one of the greatest albums ever made. The album is made up of four movements: Acknowledgement, Resolution, Pursuance and Psalm. The album reflects Coltrane’s live performances during which solos would often range for over an hour. Elvin Jones recalled that Coltrane once soloed for three hours straight! What is Classic Album Sundays? Classic Album Sundays is the world's most popular record club. CAS allows the listener to fully immerse themselves in the music by presenting the musical context, the story behind the album and an uninterrupted replay of the album on vinyl on an audiophile hi-fi sound system (with phones switched off and no conversation). People learn about the history of the album and then hear things in the music that they have never heard before. The events are mainly attended by non-audiophiles who are sometimes moved to tears when they hear the details of their favourite recordings. CAS currently holds regular classic-album listening sessions in London, New York, Glasgow, Edinburgh, Tokyo, Amsterdam, Oslo and many more cities. As it has touched upon a cultural nerve with its mission of challenging the way we listen to music in the 21st century, CAS has received amazing coverage in BBC Breakfast TV, The Guardian, Elle Magazine, NME, The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal and more. Classic Album Sundays was founded by Colleen “Cosmo” Murphy. Murphy is a radio host (having hosted shows since 1982 and having produced widely syndicated radio shows in the USA); an international audiophile DJ (protegé of David Mancuso and Francois Kevorkian and Director of London's Lucky Cloud Sound System); music producer and remixer (remixes for The Rapture on DFA and producing Wild Rumpus with guitarist Gary Lucas of Captain Beefheart and Jeff Buckley fame); independent label owner (Bitches Brew); and a music journalist. In her younger years, Murphy worked for a number of well-known record shops, where she amassed far too many records.
