John Coltrane: "Coltrane Jazz"
Talk and set ups.PSA's and station ID's
This is an often overlooked album recorded over two days on Nov.24 and Dec. 2,1959. It was done after his milestone recording "Giant Steps" and his great classic "My Favourite Things". It is a relaxed date with Mr. Coltrane and his partners from Miles Davis' band. In fact they were all in the employ of Davis at this time. We hear Coltrane with Wynton Kelly on piano, Paul Chambers on bass and Jimmy Cobb on drums. The tunes are a mix....three underplayed standards and five originals by Mr. Coltrane. All the tunes are short and concise and reflect Mr. Coltrane in a lyrical and happy mood throughout. We also hear the first documented version of his classic composition for his first wife..."Naima". "Coltrane Jazz" is just that.....fine music in the great tradition by the formost voice of the tenor saxophone.
We all wish everyone out there a very HAPPY NEW YEAR from myself, Gavin Walker and The Jazz Show.
