CD Reviews

Simply THE BEST!

(5 out of 5 stars)

"This entire effort is Trane at his best.Just when you've thought you've heard My Favorite Things in every concievable way,look out.This is THE QUARTET at it's finest 18 minutes.On Eckstine's, I Want to Talk About You,you'll quickly notice that Trane is a balladeer atheart.His solo is probably my most memorable passages in my life.Selflessness is a continous burst of high voltage,energy charges.The combination of Trane and at the time little known Pharoah Sanders,is a colorful and forceful combination that blend into blaze of fury.Add percusionist,Rashied Ali,and ump!I've often imagined these cats in a music class together and as the instructor leaves the rooms,these cats just cuttin' up.As the teacher walks back in,he's in hysteria, "Mr.Coletrane, Mr.Sanders,McCoy,what the.... I originally bought this back in 1970 while serving in SE Asia,and I've searched high and low for it.Try it,and you'll see why I say, "It's simply "THE BEST!""

"I'm in full agreement with Zak's review, this is an essential addition to any fan's collection. One thing that's inaccurate, however, is the personnel.
So this is what you get:
Favorite Things & I Want To Talk : recorded Newport Jazz 1963, with Tyner, Garrison, and Roy Haynes on drums.
Selflessness : Oct 1965 LA, Tyner, Garrison, Elvin Jones, Sanders, Donald Garrett (bcl), Frank Butler (dr), Juno Lewis (perc)"
