This week’s show is a tribute to Trane – John Coltrane. Trane died 50 years ago this year & there’s a new documentary about the man that I saw with two friends last weekend. That screening inspired this show.
I bring you one song – my favorite song – from each one of his first 8 records plus the show opens with Coltrane playing with Johnny Hartman followed by one hit of his own composition but performed with the Miles Davis Quintet.
“They Say It’s Wonderful” – with Johnny Hartman
“Trane’s Blues” – The Miles Davis Quintet
“While My Lady Sleeps”
“I’ll Wait & Pray”
“My Favorite Things”
