Hun beste vind ik. Langere nummers dan in de eerdere albums, waarin ze vaak heerlijk de tijd nemen zonder een moment te vervelen. Heel sfeervol ook vind ik. Het concert in Paradiso was erg goed.quote:
quote:A fair amount of Coltrane’s music has been released after the fact, but nothing that would seem, from a distance, quite so canonical as Both Directions At Once, which is 90 minutes worth of (mostly) previously unheard recordings made at Rudy Van Gelder’s studio on March 6, 1963—the middle of the classic-quartet period.
Why have we not heard these tapes before? It's hard to imagine that they could have been blithely ignored or forgotten. The 2018 answer is that mono audition reels of the session were only recently found in the possession of the family of Coltrane's first wife, Juanita Naima Coltrane. (Impulse! didn't have the music; the label's master tapes may have been lost in a company move from New York to Los Angeles.) The 1963 answer is unknown, and probably more complicated.
