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?

    I love that one.

    I’d suggest Chim Chim Cheree for a follow-up, but I can’t find any videos of it.

    Love the avatar. Tattooed your knuckles yet?
