audio: flames from trane 1965

Close your eyes and hold on. Something got into Trane in 1965. Where ever he flew, Elvin was there with him.

The tempo is the speed of light. The feeling is a little mad, like Vincent van Gogh, yet the music’s brilliance burns like the sun. (It’s a live recording so adjust your ears accordingly.)

This ain’t ‘Smooth Jazz.’ This is as hard as it gets.

I put lyrics to Coltrane’s urgent repetitive riff: “We Don’t Like This Government!” Do you feel me?!
