Coltrane in "A love supreme" sessions. "Whenever photographer Chuck Stewart was hired by a record company to document a recording session, he would shoot during the rehearsal takes. Recently, his son David was browsing through his archives when he found six undeveloped rolls of film from December 1964, 50 years ago.. They portrayed saxophonist John Coltrane . . . with his quartet, making a work that would soon be hailed as a masterpiece and a landmark of 20th-century music: A Love Supreme." posted by goofyfoot (9 comments total) 17 users marked this as a favorite

 
This is really, really cool and all, but...six rolls of film and they're only showing three shots of the sessions?

Yeah but they're good shots.

And it's going to be really hard to convince publishers to pay top dollar for any of the rest if they're openly circulating on the internet. The man's got to make money.

Stewart also took this photo of Coltrane.

Here is a version without the watermark.

So they're gonna make this into a big ass coffee table book right? Because I would buy the hell out of that.

Well damn. Beautiful shots, and I love the notes and doodles as well!
