Gambit

Reference: 69239_2

Includes in its integrity the October 25, 1963 performance at Tivoli Konsertsal, Copenhagen, Denmark.

This release presents a long hard to find concert by the classic Coltrane Quartet performing extended versions of Coltrane's compositions "Mr. PC", "Impressions", "The Promise" and "Naima", plus versions of Mongo SantamarĂ­a's "Afro Blue" and Richard Rodgers-Oscar Hammerstein II's "My Favorite Things".

Some of them are authentic tours de force in which the musicians seem fully immersed. Roland Kirk was also in town and after the concert the two saxophonists went to Copenhagen's famous Café Montmartre to play during a well remembered (but unfortunately not recorded) jam session, backed by Kirk's band.

Coltrane's playing is risky and adventurous, as always. To quote the great man : "Whenever I make a change, I'm a little worried that it may puzzle people. And sometimes I deliberately delay things for this reason. But after a while I find there is nothing else I can do but go ahead".
