Improvised Music’s Archives (part 23)
“I Want To Talk About You” (Billy Eckstine)
John Coltrane (tenor saxophone), McCoy Tyner (piano), Jimmy Garrison (bass), Roy Haynes (drums).
(From the album “Newport ‘63”)
This was the very first track from Coltrane I heard in my life. I remember being puzzled, still unable to grasp what exactly was going on, lost amidst so much information. And Coltrane’s unaccompanied solo intrigued me so much, I just HAD to get a saxophone myself and try to figure things out! Brilliant drumming by Roy Haynes…
