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.
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.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.
Ah, DeadAudiolink Removed :welldone
4 minutes 51, is that all?
Nice recording, hope the other 3 takes come out, I'd like to hear you play "out there"
