Coltrane, John – Bye Bye BlackbirdVendor: Original Jazz Classics
RARE/2HAND VINYL ON ORIGINAL JAZZ CLASSICS
OJC 681 made in Germany.
Vinyl NM. Cover EX.
A straight reissue of the Pablo LP, this CD only contains 36 minutes of music but the quality is quite high. John Coltrane and his Quartet (pianist McCoy Tyner, bassist Jimmy Garrison, and drummer Elvin Jones) perform extended versions of "Bye Bye Blackbird" and "Traneing In" that gradually build up to great intensity. Well recorded, this European concert (of uncertain origin) is worth hearing, particularly by Coltrane collectors who already have his more essential recordings, although it does not quite live up to the label that producer Norman Granz gave it: "His Greatest Concert Performance."
A Bye Bye Blackbird 17:50
B Traneing In 18:40
