Africa/Brass – by John Coltrane


Vinyl LP

From WikiPedia:

Africa/Brass is the eighth studio album by jazz musician John Coltrane, released on September 1, 1961 on Impulse! Records.[1] The sixth release by the fledgling label and Coltrane’s first for Impulse!, it features Coltrane’s working quartet augmented by a larger ensemble to bring the total number of participating musicians to 21. Its big band sound, with the unusual instrumentation of French horns and euphonium, presented music very different from anything that had been associated with Coltrane to date. While critics originally gave it poor ratings, more recent jazz commentators have described it as “amazing”[8] and as a “key work in understanding the path that John Coltrane’s music took in its final phases.”
