Mental Davey. Great start but a bit noodly in the middle. Still loved it though.
I bought an Italian live version of "A love supreme" and it's ghastly. I love the studio album though. Brave man, well done.

Aye Crescent is the business. Love to play Lonnie's Lament, now I don't blub in the middle of it. It gets me every time.

Out there interpretations are fine with me!

I know that I'm about to make enemies, but I don't care for much of Coltrane's playing or compositions. You've brought it more to life than his playing ever could. Better tone, articulation and more direction. Coltrane to me is a very overrated player. Too many worship him due to his technique without using their ears. He was certainly a technical master but lacked warmth and melodic vision but certainly had his own sound (which was often out of tune). I'd much rather hear your playing than his.

Redo Coltrane if you must, (and it's likely to be much better then his playing), but with your talent why go there? There's a world of sounds and composition that you can explore rather than doing just another Coltrane cover. You've got all you need to become your own legacy. Aim high shoot true and see where the arrow lands.

I admit i'm a Coltrane fan only really on his more later modal albums,Coltranes sound,Cresent,Love Supreme.That band cooked.Also with Miles and Cannoball i love but the hard bop stuff not really.I think Branford Marsalis live in Holland does take the love supreme version to a great place.I'm rather stunned at your thoughts about my version which was a 4th take as i wish i were half the player you make out.Saying that though as we have said before i am happy were i am,well kind of,just. but i do need to get back to practise.Seems a long time ago i really studied hard.But again when i hear back more at all this crazy recording the last few weeks i do laugh at myself at how melodic,lyrical i seem to be.I'm not a be bop player or big pattern player.Making lots of little tunes,melodys in a tune is what i hear in my head.Andy Sheppard is a master stellar god of this.As your playing Wade is fantastic at this.Thanks again for your thoughts and wisdom.

Am I the only one who can't see any link to this tune? There's just a blank space below the text and no link - I've tried different browsers - Chrome, Firefox, Opera and IE9 - is this a fault,or are we into psychic communication with JC now?

I'm by no means a paid up member of the cult of Coltrane but some of his ballads- 'After the Rain' & 'Lush Life' are the first that spring to mind- are achingly beautiful by any standards.
