What's easy to do for two/is so hard to be done by one. Monica and Doug, two titans, take it to the stage at the same time!

Y'all should go enjoy Monica over on WFMU, but come back at 11am (ET) for Part 2 of the Coltrane documentary!

BTW my band is doing a show tomorrow with Andes Manta, four Ecuadorian brothers.
  Fri. 6/23/17 9:45am Alex in Illinois:

This is a greeting? For a while, it sounded like they were trying to see who can do the most push ups or sit ups.
Avatar    Fri. 6/23/17 9:45am Webhamster Henry:

But they are less volatile than these guys.

Next two songs from Tonga had me weeping the other night. Just kept listening to them over and over and over. So gorgeous.

Brilliant New Orleans drummer James Black is on this Yusef record. Stroke of genius to include his strokes of genius.

Been listening to Eastern Sounds by Mr Lateef. Has that Chinese flute, a Xun, like the sound of it.

Love that record, Brian. But you knew that.
Avatar    Fri. 6/23/17 10:33am βrian:

Never heard this Ray Bryant before, that's for sure. I thought maybe Dollar Brand had snuck in.

@βrian: I have an empty set ( ∅ ) (Mika Vaino solo project) record. It sounded like minimal electronic bleeps w/ occasional rhythmic clicks.

Out of town, have a few minutes to listen and check in, hiya drummers!

Are Giant Steps and Coltrane Jazz twins.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 6/23/17 11:20am doctorjazz:

What a bad review, wow! Wouldn't want to be that reviewer later...
Avatar    Fri. 6/23/17 11:20am duke:

Whoever wrote that Metronome review should have their reviwer's license revoked.
Avatar Fri. 6/23/17 11:22am Doug Schulkind:

Coltrane Jazz came after the Giant Steps deep investigations period. Coltrane Jazz begins the period of expressionism.

That Metronome reviewer can be forgiven. There is no way he or she could have any real understanding of what exactly was going on during Trane's Giant Steps solo.
Avatar Fri. 6/23/17 11:25am Doug Schulkind:

Andrew White here is the greatest Coltrane historian in terms of the music. He was a member of the JFK Quintet in the early '60s in Washington, DC. So him perform many times during my young adulthood in the D.C. area. What a brilliant man.
Avatar Fri. 6/23/17 11:26am Doug Schulkind:

Strap on your seat belts, folks.

Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 6/23/17 11:43am Brian in UK:

The feeling I get is that even religion was not high enough for John Coltrane.
Avatar Fri. 6/23/17 11:45am Doug Schulkind:

Trane's disappointment with religion's insufficiency and inconsistency —suggests you are onto something, Brian in UK.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 6/23/17 11:49am Brian in UK:

It is difficult to take someone elses own intensity to one's own interior; it is so demanding.
