Miles Davis and John Coltrane playing "So What" from "The Sound Of Miles Davis" Coleman Hawkins and Charlie Parker jam session Coleman Hawkins 1962. A 30 minute performance. This video starts with a masterful, unaccompanied tenor solo by Hawkins John Coltrane and Stan Getz - "Rifftide". "Rifftide" is a jump piece by Coleman Hawkins (and probably Thelonious Monk" since Hawkins played this while Monk was his pianist The melody is nearly identical to Monk's "Hackensack"). This was recorded as part of a Jazz at the Philharmonic presentation in Europe in 1960. John Coltrane and Eric Dolphy - "Impresions" (!961). Impressions is the melody that Coltrane played on the "So What" chord changes at a much faster tempo.

Coltrane recorded "Vigil" as a saxophone/drum duet with Elvin Jones in the studio about six weeks before this performance, This is the only video I know of that shows Coltrane going into battle with his drummer like this. McCoy Tyner joins after 5 minutes with a marvelous piano solo. Coltrane has replaced the first half of the "Vigil" with a newly composed melody which leads into the second half of the "Vigil" melody. John Coltrane Quartet performing Naima, Comblain La Tour, Belgium, 8/1/1965. It must have been a chilly night. Water vapor is billowing off of Elvin Jones and Jimmy Garrison as they play.

Friends And Neighbors Science Fiction Skies Of America Free Jazz John Coltrane Coltrane's music is strong stuff. If you are unprepared, it will overwhelm you and leave you bewildered. He can play very fast. Listening to Trane, you have to give up the idea that you are going to catch every note as it blows past you. Instead, the notes melt together and give you a composite feeling. There is a lot of evidence that when he was playing his fastest he was playing notes that outline a chord so you can hear him play chords against what his piano player was playing. He invented a new sound for the saxophone He came from a family of black preachers and his saxophone sound emulates a preacher who is feeling the Holy Spirit,especially in his later recording. In every period of his career he had a high keening sound on tenor saxophone. By the early 60's, he had mastered ways of producing multiphonics (notes that sounded two or three notes at once). He was able to bend his notes to find blue sounds at any instant in his lines. He could change his range so quickly that he could honk a low note and scream high in just an eyeblink. He's a portal through which African ideas entered Western music in a very strong way His favorite drummer, Elvin Jones, played polyrhythmically (multiple rhythm streams that maintain more than one pulse at the same time) and with great intensity. Elvin was playing on his drum set what an African drum ensemble with four or five drummers would play. Elvin was always changing the flow of the rhythm as Trane soloed and would change his accompaniment for each soloist in the band. He and his quartet played like they were having a four way conversation, where everyone had space to say something at any moment. Trane would go high and Elvin would cymbal bash to send him higher. Elvin would roll and Trane would play a repetitive rolling pattern to match Elvin's figures. Elvin would play a pattern on his low drums and Trane would honk low to get down there with him. At the strongest moments, all four men would together spin the music like a giant man getting ready to throw a huge weight for miles. His sound was very vocal. He wasn't trying for the clean sound that Westerners idolize. He was willing to moan, sob, shout and scream with his horn. These are my favorite Coltrane recordings, with the ones I love most on top. I like the middle and late periods of his career best so there are more albums from that part of his career towards the top. Afro-Blue/Impressions - Some of the best live performances with his mid-60's quartet (Elvin Jones, McCoy Tyner, Jimmy Garrison) in Europe in 1963 A Love Supreme Transition Crescent Coltrane (Impulse AS-21) One Down, One Up Live at Birdland Expression Expression The tunes from this are from Coltrane's last two recording session recorded shortly before he died in 1967. Carl Sagan's crew at Jet Propulsion Laboratories compiled an album that was attached to the Voyager space probes which would represent the best musical utterances of all of humanity, because the Voyagers were going to be the first man-made objects to leave the solar system. I've always felt that Ogunde from this album should have been one of the recordings that was included. It is a short performance, less than 5 minutes. I feel when I listen to this that Coltrane was trying to sum up his entire life in this one short performance. His sound is incredibly large and lyrical and centered, with a huge vibrato. Soloing, he shows his incredible mastery of harmony and rhythm, floating away from the theme and then returning to it twice. He ends the piece with a seemingly endless flow of fast pitches that he breathes at a whisper. No one has shown this kind of mastery of the tenor saxophone in the 33 years since Trane's passing. Offering and Expression both share a similar kind of plan. They both start with lyrical, out of tempo melodies, that Coltrane varies very freely. The drummer, Rashied Ali, rolls lightly in accompaniment and Alice Coltrane plays arpregiated harp-like piano. After several repetitions of the main themes, Ali swells up like a storm and Coltrane turns to duel with him. Coltrane plays circular roll-like figures in the middle of his horn that sound like he's imitating Ali's drum figures. He constantly breaks free of these loops and screams high or drops low on his horn, sometimes seeming to play in the high, low and medium registers all within the same beat. At the end of each duel, Alice and Jimmy Garrison re-enter and Coltrane returns to the main theme of the pieces, each time like the sun breaking through storm clouds and shining like glory. The fourth piece on the album, "To Be" is one of the few performances where Coltrane is recorded playing flute. I've heard that he was playing a flute that he inherited from his friend Eric Dolphy for this. His young friend, Pharoah Sanders, accompanies on flute. The piece maintains a single slow mysterious mood for all of its 15 minute length. I don't usually listen this much, since it's not as substantial a piece of music as Ogunde, Offering and Expression.

Three members of his band at the time, saxophonist Dave Liebman, drummer Al Foster and percussionist Mtume accompany Abbey along with a Japanese pianist and bass player. The recording is almost entirely of originals that Abbey wrote. "Dorian (The Man With The Magic)" seems like an homage to Miles. ("The man/who has the magic/has a secret he won't tell"). "Natas" and "Naturally" are great also. The world-class performance on this album is a version of John Coltrane's "Africa". Abbey wrote lyrics for it. Liebman and Foster provide the Coltrane-Elvin Jones energy and Abbey matches it. She's the only vocalist male or female who I've heard capture Trane's intensity in one of their performances. This raises the hair on my back and makes me want to cry everytime I hear it.

Cool links Conga Joy - a site that offers many educational materials for hand drummers. Conga Joy is run by Bill Matthews who was my hand drumming teacher for two years. His Conga Joy book is the source of a number of the MIDI sequences presented in The Rhythms. Ralph Patt's Vanilla Book Index - Ralph Patt has compiled a collection of chord notation of several hundred chord sequences for standard and jazz tunes that jazz musicians like to play. In the Vanilla Book he has attempted to present the chord sequences as simply as possible without harmonic adornments in order to allow performers the widest possible latitude when performing these tunes. Simplified versions of many of the chord sequences offered in The Changes can be found in this index. Clicking on links in the index takes you to a listing of the vanilla changes for the tune. Ralph Patt's Tonal Centers Page - In this section of his site, Mr. Patt has cataloged a large number of harmonic sequences that are commonly used in standards and jazz tunes. The links on this page take you to pages that list tunes that share the named harmonic device. If you follow one of these links to a particular tune, it shows a listing of that tune's changes which shows the part of the tune that uses that harmonic device highlighted. ASCAP ACE repretoire database - ASCAP is the performing rights organization which collects broadcast and performance royalties for most classical music and music written for film that is still under copyright. The ACE database identifies the composer, lyricist and publisher of the tunes that it licenses. I frequently title search this database to identify the composer of chord sequences listed in The Changes on this site. BMI HyperRepretoire database title search - Broadcast Music, Inc (BMI) is the performing rights organization which collects broadcast and performance royalties for most rock, jazz, country, rap, blues and other popular tunes. ASCAP and BMI handle almost all of the music licensed in the United States, so if a tune doesn't appear in the ASCAP database it almost always is listed here.
