John Coltrane – The Complete 1961 Village Vanguard Recordings

For tonight’s walk I went back to Trane.

I have the box set of the Complete 1961 Village Vanguard Recordings so I loaded that up.

This is the quartet expanded to include Eric Dolphy on bass clarinet. The combination of that sound with Coltrane’s soprano on the opening track is magic.

A 5K walk in cold air, snow flurries starting on the way back, and music recorded while my one year old self was lying in a crib a few miles to the north.
