John Coltrane :: Newport Folk Festival, 1966

I like to ‘check in’ with this clip every now and again. You know, like right now. Footage recorded July, 2 1966, a year prior to Coltrane’s passing the following summer. This is also an excuse to give away a couple of copies of the “My Favorite Things” 45 that the label ran in conjunction with the recent release of their John Coltrane – The Atlantic Years In Mono vinyl box earlier this year. So, if that floats your boat, leave a comment below along with one of your favorite Coltrane video clips. Winner notified later this week via email.

  1. The crew getting funky on a standard in 66′: John Coltrane – Soprano, Pharoah Sanders – Tenor, Alice Coltrane – Piano, Jimmy Garrison – Bass, & Rashied Ali – Drums

  2. I will always enjoy McCoy but I prefer Alice Coltrane on piano. Others might hate but there is something really unique about Alice and John’s interplay and it always makes me wonder what might have been.

    Heres a ‘Coltrane’ clip.
