When Coltrane hit the West Coast in autumn 1965 his music was taking turns even regular sidemen like Elvin Jones and McCoy Tyner couldn't understand. Trane had already augmented his classic quartet with the incendiary young avant garde tenorist Pharoah Sanders (as documented on the album "Meditations") and the marathon free-jazz jam "Ascension", (which added other leading progressive jazzmen such as Archie Shepp and Marion Brown) was already in the can. To even the most casual observer it must have been apparent that Trane's established musical world was pulling apart.

This album, cut the evening before the genuinely odd "Om" session (allegedly Coltrane's only recorded experiment with LSD) at Seattle's Penthouse club, and not issued until after his death, is a truly intoxicating example of how the tensions of this disintergration filtered through the creativity of the players involved. To the basic quartet and Sanders, Coltrane also adds Donald Garrett playing both bass and bass clarinet (actually Eric Dolphy's old horn) and the results sometimes sounds as if they were ripping the club walls apart. The 36 minute "Evolution" and 34 minute (imcomplete) version of "Afro-Blue" are among the most intensely terrifying moments in all of Coltrane's discography.

What is remarkable about this CD (expanded with two previously unissued tracks from the 1970s double LP issue) is that, even late in the day, Coltrane still plays two standards: "Body and Soul", famously recorded by him for the "Coltrane's Sound" (Atlantic) session in 1960 and "Out Of This World", dating back to the classic quartet's first studio album on Impulse, "Coltrane", recorded in 1962.
Unsurprisingly the resemblance between these post-"Ascension" versions and their predecessors is slight.

I was disappointed it wasn't the full version of the concert with Body and Soul -
I didn't check before buying. The last year of the classic quartet is amazing -
I'd like to hear everything. 'Trane is on some other world whether spiritually
or chemically high. Pharaoh is like some kid who's been allowed to play in
his Dad's mates band - very irritating, he doesn't know how to play over changes,
and you wish you could airbrush him out. In fact, with a little Samplitude +
YouTube, I could recreate the concert with just the Quartet. The Bass
Clarinet guy is good tho'.

Towards the end of his life, as any Trane lover knows, the saxophonist became increasingly irate with the narrowness of conventional music, feeling he could not fully express himself in short solos. He had a lot to express. He had found God, and wished to create, in notes, the feelings of love and optimism he felt. Not wishing to advocate the Lord, he does appear to have his uses.
I can't listen to John Coltrane's early music anymore, the pre-classic quartet years - Blue Train, Davis' stuff. I think Coltrane was getting somewhere, free from chord changes and harmony. Jazz, however, become old hat when Elvis appeared, and the kids wanted something more violent. One can associate this with the introduction of abstract art with the invention of photographs etc., but like modern art, later Coltrane, like Ornette Coleman, Albert Alyer or Charles Mingues at the time, was trying to show much more than songs about pretty girls or having a good time, but songs of feeling and emotion like words have in conversation between a couple, the minimalism needed to show that love, how words, like Coltrane's notes, became joined up with their several meanings and levels. It was the sound in his head, the sound of a life. To dismiss it as noise in favour of smooth, easy listening jazz is to give up on obtaining something wonderful from life.
A review...oh, yes. His solos could be long, but he is not self-indulgent. Jimmy Garrison would soon leave the band after this, not being able to hear himself above the double drums of Pharoah Sanders and Elvin Jones (whom would also leave round about the same time), but here Coltrane gives him the oppurtunity for a seperate solo, the last track on the first CD, 'Tapestry in Sound'. There is also an 18-minute bass duet at the end of the second track on the second CD.

5.0 out of 5 stars Exploring new ground in Pioneer Square 30 May 2014
By James Ferguson - Published on
Verified Purchase
This live recording laid hidden for 6 years before being released as a double album in 1971. It had four cuts from that night with the lengthy Evolution and Out of This World split over two sides. It wasn't until 1994 that the full concert was released on two CDs with the addition of Body and Soul and the rapturous Afro-Blue, resulting in over 2 hours of pure listening pleasure. For some odd reason when the CD was re-released in 2012, it was back to the original four songs on one disc.

It is a landmark album as it is one of the first live recordings to feature Coltrane in his newly adopted free jazz mode, with the stellar support of Pharoah Sanders. There are still the melodic phrasings opening up pieces, but Coltrane and Sanders quickly drift into cosmic flights with Donald Garrett adding double bass support to Jimmy Garrison. Tapestry in Sound features these two great bass players. Elvin Jones and McCoy Tyner fill out the sextet, providing wonderful solos at key moments.

Coltrane had set a new tone the year before with A Love Supreme and would cross over entirely into free jazz in the following years. What makes this album special is that it is an excellent recording by Jan Kurtis. So good that Coltrane and company recorded Om in Jan's studio the next day after hearing the tapes. 1965 was a very busy year for Coltrane and I guess the recording got lost in the shuffle and wouldn't be released until after his death. Hunt for the 2CD set as you will want to hear the concert in its entirety.

4.0 out of 5 stars Outside jazz modality 10 Mar. 2013
By Vince Storti - Published on
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Over the years I've heard various Coltrane riffs and discussion of "outside" jazz; I've noted the savage cacophony that supplanted with "progressive" forms of jazz. I'd been curious about how the breakthrough era evolved; from various sources, I learned that "Live in Seattle" was a breakthrough into the new sound, leaving behind the more sweet cadences of the early '50's. This confirmed a lot of what I already understood, although I learned that Pharoah Sanders was a new ingredient to the mix. As an educational motif, this particular album provided answers. Harsh, suggestive of the times, the rage, the need for a freedom, it is not for a nice quiet relaxing mood. It is to understand what these individuals felt as they sonically related to the world that had pushed them to their limits, as they now pushed us to ours. SAVAGE!

The recording quality itself was fine. Thanks to Amazon, I found something that hadn't been on the shelves at my local musiporium.

4.0 out of 5 stars How Sweet It is 16 Aug. 2013
By Thomas M. Galla - Published on
Verified Purchase
The way that the interplay between these master jazz greats takes place is truly inspiring to me. Coltrane had a couple of extra players on this set. The areas that they delve into together are truly magical for me. At this stage of his career his muse was steering him to trust his feelings and let it rip. There is an unmatched purity and feeling of connection to the higher dimensions in these live recordings. This is a masterpiece. I'd like to give it a 4.5. The sound for a recording from 47 years ago is truly marvelous.
4.0 out of 5 stars almost perfect 29 July 2015

Got this cd originally in 2009 or early 2010, then a friend lost it, so I haven't had it all this time. Anyways I got this out of an impulse I had, didn't even look at the track list. I didn't realize till I got the cd that afro blue isn't on it, that's a pretty big bummer. I don't get why you would update a coltrane cd and then remove a track, oh well. That aside this is a classic, one of my favorite cds.

This is one of the most fantastic performances I've ever heard. The idea that it was done in 1957 is mind-blowing. I only wish people were making such passionate and truly special music today. Hint - if you like Taylor Swift this isn't for you.
