Ancestor Worship 73: My Favorite Things

Our investigation into the music recorded by John Coltrane for Atlantic Records during 1959-1961 takes us tonight to the first segment of the epic recoridng sessions of October 21, 24 & 26, 1960 that introduced the classic John Coltrane Quartet with McCoy Tyner (piano) and Elvin Jones (drums)—and in this first incarnation, Steve Davis on bass—plus the modern sound of Trane’s soprano saxophone to the world. The songs recorded at tis session are presented in the order in which they were cut in the Atlantic Recording Studios, except for the last cut which was moved up in the chronology for programmatic purposes.
