...was recorded in NYC this day 46 years ago (10-21-1960); Tom Dowd was an engineer on the session.
This is probably the most beautiful piece of music I have ever heard. Some thing about it just gives me goosebumps.
It really strikes me that this is a Coltrane record, with no one elses name on the cover, yet at 2:18 into the track (first track on the album) he completely lays out until 7:03; doesn't play a single note. It's got to be one of the most poignant statements ever about being an ego-less musician; he just lets McCoy Tyner take the melody and then solo above the drums and bass. How frickin' cool is that? Talk about a musician knowing when to let things breathe and move away from the spotlight...

Was wondering if the Allman's were ever going to do a full fledged version.

I think it was alluded to that they were tinkering with it during the Duane era, but we have only been left with teases here and there over the years.

Maybe the Beacon this year?

they fool around with it on the Gatlinburg Tapes, there might be a few quotes here and there on some shows as well.

Go to archive.org and savor DTB's version. I highly recommend either of the versions from the Keswick Theater in 2005, with a slight preference to 11/11. This song brings out the absolute best in Derek, as you will hopefully soon hear.

I love that Derek takes the song on, and that the ABB flirt with it as well, but if you haven't heard "Trane's version of it your are completely missing the boat. And the guys in the band would be the first to tell you that. I hope this thread sends folks in John's direction.

Poignant, indeed! Hey Jeff, did you see the Trane offer in Vines? Check it out, if not.

Thanks for mentioning this.

Yes the recording is great.

And Yes Coltrane is great.

But hey…how about McCoy Tyner on piano?

Greatness too IMHO.

I just recently was exposed to the Trane about a year ago ( not counting the DTB covers). I find his music simply magnificent. I love his work more and more everytime I hear it. Afro Blue is prolly my favorite of his though. But hell, its ALL good!!

This tune sucked me into the world of jazz. I love listening to it in the wintertime, especially when it snows. AMAZING music.

Saw McCoy Tyner in NYC last month. If you have a chance to see him, do so. His band is great...and so is he. However, he was looking pretty frail. I thought he had to be pushing 80 years old. But when I checked out his bio, I found he was only in his 60s. Again, see him if he comes to your town. He's the last living link to JCs amazing quartet.

Ia addicted to coltrand, miles davis and monk. Just great stuff all around.

"yet at 2:18 into the track (first track on the album) he completely lays out until 7:03; doesn't play a single note.

but when coltrane comes back in...........wow............somewhere around the 10-11 minute mark he lets loose a riff that always sends chills down my spine. It is like the sax is gonna explode ...........awesome.

May I recommend to everyone as well:

Coltrane:

Live at Birdland
Live at the Village Vanguard
Coltrane for Lovers- with the great Johnny Hartman
A love Supreme

Miles Davis:

The Birth of Cool
Blue Miles
Sketches of Spain

Thelonious Monk:

Epistrophy
Thelonious Monk and Coltrane Live at Carnegie Hall

Oh yeah.........if you go down these Jazz roads......

Charlie Parker
Nat King Cole
Ella Fitzgerald
Satchmo
damn the list will just keep gettin bigger...........enjoy my friends

I agree. Something about this song and when it snows, the Holiday's!! Wonderful! Derek does a mighty fine job with this!

add to the list of the Coltrane records "Coltrane's Sound"

This one is often overlooked and in my opinion one of his best with the Quartet with oustanding tunes and a great reharmonized "Body And Soul"


for the Miles list.... he rarely had a bad album pre 1972

paticularly his Quintet ('65 - '68) with Wayne Shorter, Herbie Hancock,Tony Williams and Ron Carter is oustanding and often takes a back seat to the lineup he formed during the late 50's early 60's.

funny, i have this from several sources, the one on right now is from the Impulse release of "The Very Best of John Coltrane" and he doesn't let go till about 3:16. Irregardless, the spiritual current of this recording is unsurpassed, no matter what release you get it on. Hell, even live it never sounds boring. For me it has an awe-inspiring depth that i have not heard in any other music, ever. its like a gift straight from god , through my ears, and to my soul. Funny, it must be great to play jazz because you never have to play it exactly the same way twice. i can totally see how it influenced the whole 'jam band' type thing.
