Jazz Elixir

It seems that the planets and stars have not yet properly aligned for my psyche to heal. Because that’s what it will take apparently – a cosmic shift of some sort. Until that happens, I’ll just have to go on as the confused and dispirited weeper  I’ve become 😦

I’d still like to share a Music Monday with all of you, a superb one at that. This is the John Coltrane Quintet in 1961, performing his famously revered rendition of  the Rodgers and Hammerstein song “My Favorite Things”. The other musicians in Trane’s group are McCoy Tyner on piano, Reggie Workman on bass, Elvin Jones on drums, and the marvelous Eric Dolphy on flute. Part frenetic, part hypnotic, both melodic and rhythmic, alternating between intimate and “out there”, this is memorable jazz genius stuff. Be well friends. I’ll see you soon.

    Proper alignment of planets and stars? Why didn’t you say so sooner? I’ll go to work on it and get back to you 🙂
