My favorite Coltrane on Atlantic and at times his whole catalog. 

Yeah, I'd rate Olé Coltrane right up there with his best too.  :tup

Tyner and Davis solos on the title track are incredible. I hear a Stanley Cowell connection in song style and Tyner’s playing. Like this was an influence on SC.

I'd never thought about that -- but it makes sense.  Tyner's influence was so far-reaching.  I'll give it a spin and see if I can hear the same.

I'm playing the deluxe release with the bonus track Untitled Ballad (To Her Ladyship). It's ok. The title track and Aisha steal the show for me.

Tania Maria "Come with Me" Concord Jazz Japan cd

s-l640.jpg

Somewhere around here I have this on SACD as well, but this cd sounds very good. 

I really like Tania more and more and pulled out about a half a dozen more of her cds to listen to in the near future. She's a bit nuts but man she has so much talent!

I have that same release, and I agree re: the bonus cut.  Understandable why it wasn't issued back in day.  It isn't on the same exalted level as the original three cuts, IMO.

I'm just now listening to Olé Coltrane, and I think I can hear what you were talking about.  Seems like Tyner's modalism became "part of the vocabulary" for many pianists -- especially guys like Stanley Cowell, John Hicks, and (a bit later) Mulgrew Miller.

Inspired me to listen to some Hicks

And quick question to the board:

Just came across this LP online and don't recognize it. United Artists European issue only at discogs. Are these live tracks? And are they elsewhere other than this LP?

This is pretty much the band that I saw live in December of 1970, captured in a pretty reasonable recorded representation. To call them powerful would be a gross injustice!

If I had a time machine to go back to any gig I ever attended, that might be the one.. first live jazz, and LOCKJAW!!!

Harold Jones still does not get enough credit. Hell that vintage of Basie doesn't get enough credit. Blame it on the records. But not this one.

Interesting alto chairs... Do I miss Marshall Royal & Bobby Plater? Not sure, but I definitely notice their absence.

OTOH - LOCKJAW APLENTY!!!! 

And George Duvivier!

1989. When all that OTHER nonsense was raging, some people were doing stuff like this. Thank you, Gary Thomas (and crew).
