Kenny Garrett's heartfelt tribute to John Coltrane.
on 25 September 2017
Alto saxophonist Kenny Garrett(b. 1960) recorded this heartfelt tribute to John Coltrane(1926-67) during 1996 with Pat Metheny(guitar); Rodney Whitaker(bass) & Brian Blade(drums).
Garrett is on powerful form with a superb rhythm section on 11 tracks, all Coltrane compositions except 'Latifa' credited to the band, and highlights are 'Alabama' and a wonderful version of 'After The Rain'.
There have been many tribute albums to the great saxophonist and Kenny Garrett's 65-minute 'Pursuance' is one of the finest.
