Weekend Bop

I'm going to try to put more music on here. This is a great one from the late John Coltrane (1926-1967, died before his time of liver cancer). Here he plays soprano sax.

The other personnel: McCoy Tyner, piano; Elvin Jones, drums; Jimmy Garrison, bass. On a program hosted by the late, venerable music columnist Ralph Gleason.

Crazy -- MJ.

Oh yeah, that's the stuff!

Oh, I forgot to put on there that the title of the piece is Afro Blue. I think it was first recorded around '62. Coltrane was not the composer, but he sort of made this piece his own. He composed enough stuff that I think that shouldn't be held against him.
