Issued in 1968, more than a year after John Coltrane's death, Cosmic Music is co-credited to John and Alice Coltrane. Trane appears on only two of the four tracks here (they are also the longest): "Manifestation" and "Dr. King." They were both cut in February of 1966 at Coast Recorders in San Francisco, with the great saxophonist fronting his final quintet with Alice, Pharoah Sanders, Jimmy Garrison, Rashied Ali, and Ray Appleton adding percussion. "Manifestation" is also the first recorded instance of Sanders playing the piccolo in addition to his tenor saxophone; he takes an extended solo on the instrument. "Dr. King" was written to honor the civil rights leader during his lifetime. King's assassination occurred less than a year after the saxophonist's death. While it begins with a sketchy modal theme, the track soon moves toward the far side of the quintet's free expression. The mix on both these tracks is a bit problematic. Much like Om, which was also released in 1968, the sound on these two cuts is somewhat muddy, hinting that these were idea sketches and not finished works. The piano and bass are all but hidden except during solos, and Ali's fiery drumming is often out of balance -- either buried or too bright. By contrast, the other two tracks, "Lord, Help Me to Be" and "The Sun," offer exceptional fidelity. They are essentially Alice's first two recorded pieces for Impulse after signing a solo contract with the label. She is accompanied by Sanders, Garrison, and drummer Ben Riley. These are both fine pieces, with Alice's bluesy modal chord constructions at the fore, recorded in their home studio. The final track, while only a touch over four minutes, is a fine vehicle for Alice's signature pianism. While this record holds up quite well -- despite the problems of sound mentioned above -- it is still a minor Impulse album compared to some of the saxophonist's master works. ~ Thom Jurek

Impulse! Orange was the new Black

Insieme a Blue Note e Verve, Impulse! è senza dubbio l’etichetta americana di jazz più nota. Una casa dipinta d’arancione che ospitò ovviamente John Coltrane ma anche i musicisti più avventurosi degli anni ’60.

Il quartetto americano di Keith Jarrett

Keith Jarrett passò i primi sette anni della sua intensa carriera a sperimentare a più non posso a capo del quartetto americano che formava insieme a Charlie Haden, Paul Motian e Dewey Redman. Tra il 1971 e il 1976, il pianista dirigerà una specie di laboratorio matto in cui cozzeranno jazz, free puro, world e avanguardia. Una parentesi spontanea che merita di essere riscoperta.

John Coltrane, il soffio continuo(a)

Proprio mezzo secolo fa, il sassofonista americano scompariva a soli 40 anni, lasciando dietro di sé numerose registrazioni che hanno sconvolto la storia del suo strumento, del jazz e anche della musica del XX secolo.
