John Coltrane Quartet – Afro Blue

Last night, my two sons (Chad and Erik) and I took in a performance by a wonderful trumpet player named Ephraim Owens. One of the tunes he covered was “Afro Blue”, by John Coltrane. Thanks to YouTube, a substantial archive of live Coltrane performances, including Afro Blue, are now available for everyone to enjoy. Here’s Coltrane’s performance of Afro Blue, with McCoy Tyner on piano, Jimmy Garrison on bass, and Elvin Jones on drums!
