John Coltrane – My Favorite Things
Baden-Baden Germany, 1961
John Coltrane – soprano sax
Eric Dolphy – flute
McCoy Tyner – piano
Reggie Workman – bass
Elvin Jones – drums
Everybody likes a swingin’ waltz, right? And there was only one man in the history of the world that could make a soprano sax sound good, and his name ain’t Kenny G.
Julie Andrews was not invited to this gig.
Tyner and Jones are in top notch form here. Replay it and just watch Jones on the drums. Freaking Brilliant!
The snappy suits ain’t bad either. Where did I put my skinny ties?
