Live In Paris
Format: COMPACT DISC
An absolute icon. After a blazing career, John Coltrane’s aura still shines brightly and the revolution he brought to music continues to influence generations of musicians. This live recording made at the end of 1962 features saxophonist Coltrane’s “historic quartet” – believed by many to be the greatest small group in jazz history – with the leader accompanied by bassist Jimmy Garrison, pianist McCoy Tyner and drummer Elvin Jones. The music on this release is a demonstration of the rhythmical elegance, incandescent fervor, visceral inspiration and extraordinary flights of harmony that made this group so remarkable, this previously unreleased recording illuminates the unsurpassable ideal of modern jazz.
