|Description :||Some records tell you what's what. But A Love Supreme Electric starts from a different place.
'What if?' it asks. In fact, ALSE asks 'What if?' over and over again, joyously interrogating the twin templates of Coltrane's A Love Supreme and Meditations from a kaleidoscopic array of angles.
Guitarist Henry Kaiser, the project's de facto theorist, chose to start with 'What if A Love Supreme and Meditations are two parts of one single expression of an ecstatic spiritual state?'
'I had known that Coltrane intended his Meditations suite to be a spiritual sequel to his A Love Supreme suite. Thus it was natural to suggest that with our A Love Supreme Electric gigs, we often play Meditations as the second set. After having done this more than a few times, I would note that...the two suites really do fit together to actually be one 2-part suite, where all the individual sections inform, deepen, cross-reference, and expand on one another, in both the musical and spiritual domains.'
