Divine Love is an album by American jazz trumpeter and composer Leo Smith recorded in 1978 and released on the ECM label.
The Penguin Guide to Jazz selected this album as part of its suggested Core Collection.
The Allmusic review by Eugene Chadbourne awarded the album 4 stars stating "His scores from this time were very well-thought-out and demanded a special type of concentration from the performers, moving into areas quite different than the usual intensity build-up of free jazz or the theme-improvise-theme standards of much that came before".
