Coltrane, John (saxophone) - 4CD-BOX: Ballads 1956-1962

Lägg till önskelista + 159 kr - Utgången

This anthology gathers together the 45 ballads recorded by John Coltrane from 1956 to 1962. These dates, however arbitrary they might seem, match up with two special moments in the saxophone player's career: 1956 was the year he first recorded as a band leader, and 1962 the year he cut his final ballads for an eponymous album released by Impulse.

Can private tragedies be shared?... Can they be communicated?... What is it that keeps us coming back to them?

All forms of art develop in their own time a particular form of celebration (sensual, sentimental, spiritual, emotional) and rebellion (cultural, spiritual, mental). Art can't exist without these two elements. Art that focuses only on glorification is nothing more than propaganda or advertisement (cf. religious, Stalinist, Maoist and Nazi art). When it loses itself in rebelliousness, it dries up, becomes bland, and turns into nothing more than an antagonistic litany, a never-ending, pointless stream of words. Art takes its origins in the point at which awareness of tragedy and intellectual knowledge connect and crystallise.

Coltrane had been surrounded by blues music since his childhood. In the early fifties, when he was playing with Gillespie, he had a full sound which he had picked up during the long hours he spent listening to saxophonists like Lester Young and Johnny Hodges.

Respecting the main melody, he embroidered a theme around his ballads, only very occasionally letting himself get distracted from the underlying harmonies, probably due to his determination to bring out their emotional, sentimental and melancholy meaning.
