Denys Baptiste - The Late Trane

Trane of Beautiful and Funky Thoughts

And this is on as I take a break from marking, catching up here and there, new to British saxophonist Baptiste and no aficionado on John Coltrane's latter work, so a good thing that DB is. It's all superb, but two tracks I've just listened to distill the breadth to excellent exemplification: Ascent that is quite funky, especially in its echoing electrification; and Peace on Earth which is beautifully drawn across Nikki Yeoh's sweet piano. Steve Williamson adds further tenor sax.
