John Coltrane - Blue Train
From Blue Train (1957, Blue Note)

An all time jazz community favourite, always worth sharing once again. Why not? A paramount album and Coltrane is simply playing everything possbile out of his horn in his solo. Fuller is blowing his soul out and the groove is so very earthy and cool. Bad times for followers who aren’t into Coltrane these days. But man, they rather get into it!

Art Blakey & the Jazz Messengers - Free For All

It may be impossible to say where’s the peak in the work of Art Blakey as a leader since the Jazz Messengers always played with changing personell changing music and did not stop in the developement to more modern and less bop orientated music.
Besideds the 1959 hard bop classic Moanin’ by Bobby Timmons this is for me one of the most essential tunes played by the Jazz Messengers: Free For All written by Wayne Shorter. This is maybe the deepest tracks  they played and overall one of the best compositions by Shorter.
Also the personell on this record is outstanding!

  • Freddie Hubbard, tr
  • Curtis Fuller, tro
