    Disagree about geniuses being nuts - that's an unoriginal cliche! However, to those who are unaware of their own genius, those who are aware may seem... different. *laughs* I like how this rambles in places, it shows command and confidence on the musicians' part.

    All geniuses are nut cases. Weird and wonderful. Love Coltrane's meanderings too.

    Nutty as a fruit cake. Bake it, man. Rich and off key as can be, he could play a swing with a tune and tap a key with a digit or two. And Coltrane fills the gap beautifully.

    This isn't John Coltrane on tenor, it's Johnny Griffin.

    to StuartHaden1: but they also sooooooo different: Monk is making the gap to let fill them up while Coltrane feed with all the detail to the max to the point of no-more-room already to think ;-) But I love it. They were so different and thus completed each other.

    and there's another nut on that sax... John Coltrane. I'm nuts about them both.

    Nutty as fruit cake? Or just plain nutty! The best nut is a walnut because it is rich in Omega three. This nut is easy to crack. It's by a wizard of jazz improvisation and inventiveness. His distinctive sound is instantly recognisable. Heard and saw him play years ago in London. He was a genius. The piano is in perfect order, that's just the way he plays on the keys.
