John Coltrane - Blues for Alice

Coltranes001This show has been known to circulate as an audience recording but this version is an excellent FM broadcast. It is also a complete show and is certainly a must for anyone into jazz, not to mention Coltrane diehards. In less than a year from this concert, Coltrane would die suddenly of liver cancer. But he is in superb form here. And to call John Coltrane, who was into free jazz, an "innovative sax player and composer," as he has been so described, doesn't even cover half the tale.One entry on the internet lists this concert as taking place on November 11,1966. Another gives only the year. Even if this is listed on the etree music database, it is doubtful many jazz fans have this in their collection. One probable tracklist would be:

Coltranes0021. Naima 16:41 (inc)
2. Cresent 26:18
3. Leo 20:38 (inc)

Meanwhile, others offered this tracklist:
1. After The Rain
2. Crescent
3. Leo
