4.0 out of 5 stars A mixed bag, 3 Aug 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Spirit Fiction (Audio CD)
Laying aside all the issues of being the son of a jazz legend, and all the pressure that that must bring, this is still a very patchy album. Part of this may stem from being recorded with two different bands in two locations, but it's also noticeable that the tracks that Coltrane wrote are much stronger than the ones included written by trumpeter Ralph Allessi, and this is emphasised by also including Ornette Colman's "Check out time" which is very strong.Coltrane's playing is distinctive and at times mellow, and he's joined on the Coleman track, and Paul Motiens " Fantasm" by Joe Lovano. My two favourite tracks the title track "Spirit Fiction" and also "Cross Roads" which is almost a soundscape. I don't regret the purchase, but I hope that by the time of the next album (which there surely will be?) that Coltrane will be inclined to rely even more on his own material, and possibly record it in just one location.
