Default John Coltrane

I just received in the mail: John Coltrane The Impulse Years, that I got for 11.99

It has five CDS:
Africa/Brass
W Duke
Live At the Village Vanguard
Ballads
Coltrane

Ironically, about a month ago I decided to upgrade my Ballads lp to CD, and spent almost the same for the one CD.

I'd tell you where I got it but Bernard might not want me advertising on this site.:)

All I can say is that it was the best buy I ever made.

John Coltrane - the name speaks for itself.

All I can say is that discovering the music of John Coltrane has been one of the best things that ever happened to me.
The evolvement of his music his music in just 12 years is out of this world; his commitment and passion for music is beyond belief and the classic quartet's contribution to jazz and music in general is bigger than imagination - you listen to some of their stuff which is 40 years old and it sounds as if it's been recorded last month. Each member of that quartet is an innovator and it was a true meeting and bonding of four great personalities.

It doesnt get much better than some coltrane thats for sure man. You should check out Ralph J. Gleason's Jazz Casual VHS. oh Coltrane its sooooooo great, Afro Blue is one of my fav's on that vid. McCoy Tyner is a beast on the piano too. I believe its on youtube just search "Jazz Casual"

This is a nice collection, and I've spent much of the afternoon getting through the three CDs I had not heard. The Coltrane already has the Coltrane/Impulse sound and African Brass is a stunning recording that's part Olatunji/part Afro-beat.

I was actually just reading another recommendation of the VHS, I think in Traps magazine. I guess it's a sign.:)
