Coltrane

I was at that Coltrane concert in 1963 at UCLA Royce Hall I remember that concert was held about 2-3
weeks after the Kennedy assassination. The trio started the concert and we were sitting very close to the
stage and you could hear Train warming up somewhere behind the stage. The trio played for at least 30
minutes. Then Train came out playing his tenor and they played about 3 tunes and then Coltrane and
Elvin Jones did a duet for about 45 minutes. Intermission -during intermission I talked to Leonard Feather
about the Free Jazz duet and he was not a avant garde fan so he said he wanted to ponder that part of the
concert. When the quartet came back they played until about 1am which was the latest show of many at Royce Hall that I attended. The quartet played quite a bit from the current Impulse album called
Coltrane with the blue cover. A fantastic musical experience!!
