A particular footnote underscores this by including a paragraph on a contentious Yahoo! Groups thread over "tracing the history of jazz musicians writing their own liner notes". I think everyone in that thread would love every bit of this book I found unnecessary.
I've recently read books on Miles and Trane's work together culminating in Kind of Blue, as well as the life of Thelonious Monk. I would rate it between these two (with the first being the best), and similarly removed from its associated source material due to its academic angle.
Maybe the best part of this book, however, is the detailed treatment of Rudy Van Gelder, whose body of work as a recording engineer has recently been celebrated as a result of his passing. It would be great to see a whole book on RVG, and I actually think an academic approach would be most suitable given his varied and technical contributions to both music production in the mid 20th Century and the interpretation of Jazz as a result of those available technologies and their implementations.
Another commendation I will give the author is that the sections that actually describe the recording of the tracks on the album can be read at roughly the same speed as the tracks themselves, which really enhanced the experience. I usually find it hard to appreciate descriptions of instrumental songs without listening to them or having just recently listened to them, so these passages were a treat.
As the somewhat unnecessarily large section detailing covers of songs on A Love Supreme intimates, tackling this almost liturgical work by Coltrane in any format is a near insurmountable task. Like many interviewees who have recorded such covers, the author seems to have taken it on respectfully and with gratitude, knowing it would be impossible to fully do justice to the source material.
