    "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...

    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.
