Renews automatically. This iconic album by the premier jazz saxophonist John Coltrane is probably his most expressive work. While consisting of no songs that were actually penned by Coltrane, he nonetheless makes them his own, with sweet melodies and nifty solos. I'm more a fan of the trumpet (Miles Davis), but John Coltrane and his sax cannot be ignored; this is absolutely essential music for any jazz devotee.
John Coltrane Soprano and Tenor Sax McCoy Taylor Piano Steve Davis Bass Elvin Jones Drums. As you may probably be able to guess this track is the same in tune the famous song of the same name. The urgency of the Saxophone make this track my favourite one of the CD. The drums indulge in some drum rolls to reflect the multiple moods of the piece. There are many moods, they are all happy. John Coltrane has been called self-indulgent, all I can say is if he is I�m glad. 4. But Not For Me. Saxophone opens this piece very neatly.
