Editorial Reviews

NTSC/Region 0. The great Jazzman John Coltrane in nine rare, live television performances, shot in the late 1950's and the early 1960's. In dazzling extended solos, showcasing his trademark 'sheets of sound,' Coltrane demonstrates his mastery of tenor, alto, and soprano saxes and the unique artistry he brought to innovations in Jazz - and in music as a whole. This collection has both breadth and depth. Four of these performances are led by Miles Davis, who features Coltrane on the worldchanging 'So What,' as well as on Dave Brubeck's 'The Duke'; and Miles also works out his huge, orchestral ensemble under the direction of Gil Evans. The rest of the program is given over to the John Coltrane Quartet - joined for two numbers, including Coltrane's signature 'My Favorite Things,' by the great flautist and sax player Eric Dolphy. Here we find Coltrane utterly in his element, in the years in which he was changing jazz forever. Classic Coltrane collaborators pianist McCoy Tyner, drummer Elvin Jones, and bassist Jimmy Garrison are given their own chances to shine as well. Rare footage - and beautiful music from one of the greatest icons of Jazz. Immortal.

Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This DVD is a rip-off x's 2! First--It does not contain any new footage of JC playing or new commentary. All has been produced elesewhere (and riped off here) in a better format. If you are going spend the $$ get the the BEST--- the following:
The World According to JC,
The Jazz Casual Concert and
The Coltrane Legacy.
Second-I got riped OFF

5.0 out of 5 stars Met my expectation! April 25, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Always loved the timbre of his horn. Was lucky to have seen him live in Chicago around 1959, or so In Chicago at a small venue on Chicago's Southside. He was "strong" as ever. Wonderful evening.

4.0 out of 5 stars Coltrane July 13, 2007
Format:DVD
This is a good dvd, if you have other Coltrane dvd's you might want to look over the song titiles as many are repeats from other discs. Overall it has decent sound and picture, espicially when you think of how long ago this was filmed.
