"We never heard Coltrane live after the band started, so it was the recordings we would lean on," remembers bassist Phil Lesh of the Grateful Dead. "Mainly it was [i]Africa/Brass[/i]. Bill Kruetzmann really got off on Elvin's drum solo on 'Africa'; of the other guys, it was pretty much the whole composition and the way it all developed, the use of the horns and stuff like that. And then just for the quality of Trane's playing, 'Blues Minor' is one of my favorites." (Kahn 53)
