John Coltrane meets Terry Riley in free jazz minimalist mashup


 
Yesterday His Name Is Alive honcho Warren Defever posted an intriguing file to his Mixcloud account, a mashup lasting in excess of 35 minutes featuring the works of spiritual jazz icon John Coltrane and minimalist composer par excellence Terry Riley.

In a mix like this it’s practically inevitable that the Coltrane numbers would predominate and hence be more readily identifiable. The mix features three single-word “A” titles from Coltrane, those being “Alabama,” “Attaining,” and “Ascension.” On the Riley side I think the first number is “Journey from the Death of a Friend” but I’m not certain.

Allow this bracing dose of spirituality to usher in a splendid weekend!
