This LP, re-released in 2000 and whose contents have been reissued in different sets on CD, features John Coltrane in two different settings. "Vigil" and the spiritual ballad "Welcome" showcase tenor saxophonist Coltrane with his classic quartet (pianist McCoy Tyner, bassist Jimmy Garrison, and drummer Elvin Jones) in June 1965. Dating from October 14, 1965, it adds tenor saxophonist Pharoah Sanders, Donald Garrett on bass clarinet and second bass, second drummer Frank Butler, and percussionist/vocalist Juno Lewis to the quartet and is a bit of an oddity. Lewis' chanting and colorful percussion make this a unique if not essential entry in Coltrane's discography. [Verve's three-track reissue appeared in 2009.]
Great album, but some tracks are re-issued
This is a very good album, the only problem is that "Vigil", and "Welcome" are already on the album "Transition". Also, "Dusk Dawn" is already on the album "Living Space"(This still may be the original release of it though). Nevertheless "Kulu Se Mama (Juno Se Mama)" and "Selflessness" aren't already on other Coltrane albums, and are a must have for the jazz listener.
Insight into Elvin
This is one of Elvin’s best recordings! Raw, deep, and intense Grooves. “Vigil” is a must for any drummer- you can every note screaming from Elvin’s kit!
Coltrane and Pharoah
HOT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! If you love Coltrane this is a must have in the collection!!!!
