My favorite version! Recorded live in Germany 1963.
Love it, one of My Favourite Things.
Elvis Costello said in 'This Is Hell'
"My favorite theme is playing
Again and again
But it's by Julie Andrews and
Not by John Coltrane"
That was my first Coltrane album, back in about '76 or '77. Loved it then, love it now. In addition to this Favorite Things, the version of "Spiritual" on that album is amazing, particularly the tension building intro. What an insane talent...
That's the schnitzel! With noodles!
Sometimes when I'm not listening to the track itself I think Coltrane is kinda wanking his way through some of those trill things. But then I listen to it, and say "well ...yeah, no". Maybe a lot of guys took that idea later and ran with it, but I still dig that version.
Another moment of beauty: Off-mike from 11:15..
