From the Navy days. Recording needs to be pitched corrected, but WOW what a document. Guess we all have to start somewhere eh? :bluewink:

You can hear a tiny bit of how Trane heard Bird. He's leaning towards arpeggio shapes even then. 0:24 0:52.

For comparisons sake. Bird at 20.

Well, Coltrane did have to deal with an enormously un-swinging and rushing drummer and a piano player playing some strange chords.
But he certainly was not the prodigy that Bird was early in his life. I think he really found his voice as soon as he picked up the tenor.

Heh. Trane eventually got it together on alto :D


Bird never really dug it tho. 1:45 - 2:03 was pretty neat tho. (that's the stuff the Tristano-ites love, turning the beat around like that).
