The Lincoln Center Jazz Orchestra - A Coltrane Serenade

ColtranelgThe Lincoln Center Jazz Orchestra is probably too big and bulky to be considered a tight unit but all the players are individually of distinction. Mainly their program is to highlight and celebrate the giants of jazz from yesteryear. They have performed and recorded music by Ellington, big band swing and numerous others.
To celebrate John Coltrane, the "house band" of Todd Williams, Wynton Marsalis, Marcus Roberts, Christian McBride, Billy Higgins and Wes Andersen are supplemented by guests Joe Henderson, McCoy Tyner and Roy Haynes.
This is a very comfortable way to get into Coltrane as the music here are among his most accessible. Dear Lord is taken at a lounge-y pace, with enough soloing to make this jazz. Coltrane’s explosive, experiential side is gently avoided. The final Mr Symes is a sweet ballad.
Almost 40 years after his passing, John Coltrane’s best work remains A Love Supreme which hopefully any self-respecting jazz fan has in his collection.
