"i've been on a coltrane bender lately. can't stop listening. this is a recording from a 1961-62(?) broadcast capturing coltrane with his relatively new group, featuring mccoy tyner, jimmy garrison, and elvin jones. it opens with a 26 minute workout of "Mr. P.C." which finds mr coltrane blowing his heart out through his sax, distorting notes wildly and twisting the fine melody of this tune into all manner of mad musical shapes. there's a long bowed-bass solo by mr garrison, and mr tyner decorates things with beautiful clusters of piano notes. elvin jones gets in some fine drum solo stuff, as well. "the inch worm," is a quirky and pleasing number, while "ev'ry time we say goodbye," is the most conventional tune on the disc. all in all, this makes a fine addition to any coltrane collection. his discography is so vast, it may take you awhile to arrive at this album, but happy listening when you do."
Excellent and a half

"This was a brand new band when Coltrane played with Garrison, Jones and Tyner in 1961. The avant gaurde was years away, and this show works between standards and material from Giant Steps.
Of the three numbers, two are good, but it is Mr. P.C. that rules the album. The quartet jams for twenty minutes on the minor blues, changing it from a compact studio horse race into an improvosation vehical.
The blues changes on P.C. have a lemon bite and while all do well, Jimmy Garrison is king with his symphonic solo. Don't beleive me: listen to the applause when he is through.
Ironically, Garrison's early moment in the sun was named for Mr. Paul Chambers, a bassist Coltrane shared with one Mr M.D. Miles Davis."
