    Anybody else checked this out? I have to say I thought the Monk/Trane would be hard to top, but (especially) Disc One of this recording is PFH.

    It also made me think of how few joints there are like the Half Note around today...

    Yeah! Like I said, this record is one of those handful of works that reminds me of what I'm looking for in jazz and in music. It is amazing how quickly a half-hour passes when you are swept up in Coltrane's mind.

    I've been listening to this every day at work for weeks. It's awesome.

    Listening to the final recordings by the quartet is like looking into the corona of the sun ...

    I agree, its a great record. Been a good year for Coltrane albums, "In Flux" is great too!

    Just listened to the first CD and really liked it - but I was just getting into Afro Blue - when the radio announcer cut in and they faded it!! :eek:

    Still worth having though - and I love the packaging - photos and notes etc. :)
