John Coltrane “Blue World” 



Unlike many posthumous releases, this isn’t a selection of out-takes and jams but was originally recorded for use in a 1964 Quebec film’s soundtrack. About ten minutes of this were in the final soundtrack, while the remainder was stored and then forgotten in the Canadian National Film Board archives, only to be rediscovered this summer.

The full album was released on Sept. 27.

Enjoy.

I tried to order it, but the amount of bulkshit you have to deal with to sign into iTunes if you are registered in a foreign country is like farting through a sand dune. As a long time Coltrane study I’ve been looking forward since they announced in July. The stuff on this album is a lot like the material on the studio album Crescent. Which is his best record to that point.

Coltrane is always great to listen to yes, but this track is to me actually quite tiresome. I like the 'long game' of parts of the solo but in most other ways it's just Love Supreme in 3:4.
The melody/impro has the same Coltrane mannerisms/fingerprints etc, but AGAIN with the minor 11th groove? Even Elvin is doing his thing. This has to be for completists.

Crescent recorded in April 64
Blue World August 64
Love Supreme January 64

So really he was busy and to expect a shift away from the lead into Crescent and the development of Love Supreme is kind of harsh. Crescent recorded Spring 64 then the seeds of LS develop over the summer and fall to recorded 9 months later-

Sounds like he was anything but tiresome.

RE: John Coltrane “Blue World” (in reply to RobF

Well, knowing he was busy doesn't affect how I hear music I'm sorry to say. It is what it is, not how it's explained.

The Beatles were equally prolific as was the way back in the 60s and I don't hear the same thing across their mid 60s albums.

But, it's just a view and not official. For the completists/fans maybe it's a buzz to hear the naissance/development of the quartal McCoy groove but I'm tired of hearing it.

RE: John Coltrane “Blue World” (in reply to RobF

Coltrane’s legacy is more sacrosanct to Americans. Finding lost studio material is like a librarian uncovering a book of speech note of MLK. To be blunt, staying it ‘for completists’ isn’t very helpful. It’s also for scholars, students and general public. Getting anything unheard from one of my countries great masters is a special gift. This is the artist who responded to The Alabama bombing they killed innocent girls. He was a spiritual part of the civil rights movement and through the actions of making music demonstrated Dr. Kings call for peaceful awareness and resistance.

He had a job to make film score and he sandwiches it between two major jazz albums of all time because musicians need to make money. But rather than see through the lens of more of same, I’d see it as a summer summation of how he made the new material for Love Supreme after the inner journeys and nuanced travel of the lines in Crescent.

I digress, but for Americans this is our cultural patrimony and I’d be very happy to find anything this guy played.
