Description

“Afro Blue Impressions” is a album from Jazz musician John Coltrane, and was recorded live in Europe in 1963 and in Stockholm, Sweden on October 22, 1963 and  includes liner notes by Benny Green and producer Norman Granz.

Featuring McCoy Tyner, Jimmy Garrison, and Elvin Jones, the record finds Coltrane breaking the constraints of form, finding and subverting the limitations of his instrument, pushing at the very frontiers of sound.

Coltrane’s soprano moves between blues, Dorian modes, and even Eastern scalar articulations in his solo. “Afro Blue” is a rhythm collision, where mode gives way to some of Trane’s most angular soprano playing, pushing the limits of the instrument and his own dexterity to near breaking points.

As the two long set-closers — “Spiritual” and “Impressions” — reveal, the group was not yet finished with more “formal” structures.
