Live in Japan [4CD]

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Scott Yanow
This very interesting four-CD set contains two sets of music by the 1966 John Coltrane Quintet, recorded in Tokyo, Japan. Most of the music had not been released in the United States until 1991. Coltrane heard on tenor, soprano, and alto engages in some ferocious interplay with Pharoah Sanders on tenor, alto, and bass clarinet, pianist Alice Coltrane, bassist Jimmy Garrison, and drummer Rashied Ali; fans of Trane's earlier records may not like these atonal flights. However, listeners who enjoy avant-garde jazz will find many stirring moments among the very lengthy performances. The shortest piece is the 25-minute version of "Peace on Earth," and "My Favorite Things" goes on...
