Coltrane, John – “Olatunji Concert: The Last Live Recording, The ” – [Abc Impulse Records]
This was Coltrane???s last live concert recording, made 3 months before his death from liver cancer. Perhaps knowing what lay in store, he phoned sound engineer Bernard Drayton just the day before to come up to Harlem and make this recording.
Track 2 – Ogunde: High energy, insane, screaming sax ??? very intense. Ends with 15 seconds of applause.
Track 3 ??? My Favorite Things: Begins with 7.5 minute bass solo, then 27 minutes of wild improvisation with occasional brief visits to the melody.
Exhausting and absolutely worth it!
