Biography

John Coltrane (1926-67) was the most relentlessly exploratory musician in jazz history. He was always searching, seeking to take his music further in what he quite consciously viewed as a spiritual quest. In terms of public recognition, this quest began relatively late. The tenor saxophonist, a native of North Carolina who later moved to Philadelphia, was 28 when he joined the Miles Davis ... Read more in Amazon's John Coltrane Store

There are few moments in jazz as genuinely shocking as Pharoah Sanders solo on "Naima" on this album. Coltrane's ballad dedication to his first wife had been a regular part of his live set throughout the classic quartets existence and even when estranged, then seperated and subsequently divorced from the dedicatee, and with his new wife in his band, the song remained a core part of his repertoire. Countless live versions by the quartet from various European locations survive, but only this single version with the new band of Sanders, the new Mrs. Coltrane, Jimmy Garrison and Rashid Ali survives and it is perhaps the best work that this later Coltrane group recorded.

Taped in May 1966 at New York's Village Vanguard (scene of Coltrane's truimphant Impulse recording dates in 1961, which gave the definitive versions of "Impressions", "India" and "Chasin' the Trane"), this album contains just two lengthy perfomances (Garrison's bass introduction to the second number is sequenced as a seperate track), balancing the opening deconstruction of "Naima" with another Coltrane staple, "My Favourite Things".
Again, this is archetypal late-Coltrane: Garrison's opening neither sets up a 3/4 vamp, the familiar theme statement doesn't occur until several minutes in as Alice comps a dissonant shifting series of chords and Ali plays neither tempo nor pulse, instead shadowing the leaders soprano with an intense rustling barrage of sound. Emanuel Rahim and Sanders add percussion behind Coltrane's opening solo, adding to this dense swirling melange of texture.

Sanders solo splutters across this undulating ferocity, as Coltrane blows Dolphy's flute in the background.

New York, 1966. Total improvisation - you will not encounter musicians stretching the boundary of listenability more. But, work at it - it's worth it. The heights of pure emotional intensity are extreme from both Coltrane and the screaming Pharoah Sanders. Backup from Alice Coltrane provides some sort of base. Jimmy Garrison's bass intro to My Favourite Things is just superlative, while Rashied Ali proves that drums ain't the instrument you thought they were at all.
Sit back, open up, and fly
Nice recording quality too.

This CD presents two lyrical Coltrane standards in the light of his late developments in "total" improvisation. After listening to this version of Naima, particularly Pharoah Sanders immensely emotional take on it, you may find it hard to go back to previous renderings: I have found that only Shepp's version can make up for that. (Actually that's nonsense) As for My Favourite Things: sublime...
Whatever you do, don't go buying Pharoah Snaders early 70s work on the strength of this: where did it all go?
