This is the classical John Coltrane Quartet of November 28, 1962. The CD's sound is a bit dull, because it was recorded possibly as a bootleg by a fan. Despite this the record is a must-buy for the passionate Coltrane/Tyner/Jones/Garrison fan. In that period the audience often expected Coltrane's famous version of 'My favorite things' and J. Coltrane in his quest for constant development always tried to present a new version. The interpretation of this song here is outstanding in its tempo and density. Listen to J.C.'s crylike oriental intro immediately followed by Elvin Jones violently beating the drums in his polyrhythmic manner. Pianist M. Tyner also plays beautiful and inspired at this modal-style period.
