The History of the New York Art Quartet
The New York Art Quartet with John Tchicai, Roswell Rudd and Milford Graves was emblematic of the mid ‘60s avant-garde scene in New York City, where musicians were looking to break away from the even the new music of Coltrane and Coleman and find different ways of organizing rhythms and improvisations. Adam Shatz, in reviewing the documentary on the group “The Breath Courses Through Us” and the recent boxed set “Call It Art,” gives us a fascinating history of the band’s origins and setting.

Sam Rivers - Point of Many Returns (1965)

This cut absolutely simmers thanks to the impeccable musicianship on hand [Hubbard, Hancock, Carter, Chambers!], but it is Rivers’ angular writing—which maintains a deep driving pulse even as it wanders astray—and his transcendent soprano solo that steal the show.

Thank you, Sam Rivers.

John Coltrane Talks About Malcolm X and Music of the Times

Dave Liebman posted this audio interview with John Coltrane on Facbook. About the interview, he writes, “Maybe the best interview of Trane from 1966. Sounds like it was done at his home in Long Island by Frank Kofsky. His humility is astounding and some great thoughts concerning recordings. - Lieb” Thanks, Dave.

So rare to hear his voice.
