I gently brushed the dust off of John Coltrane's First Meditations (For Quartet) this evening. The needle drops and the effect is instantaneous, a wash of McCoy Tyner's keys and that sax — always that sax — speaking volumes in impassioned honks and blasts.
This was the last recording to emerge from Coltrane's famed quartet, so the beauty is always bittersweet.
