The1kevino (5 months ago) Wickid! I just love the way the boys are just chilling at the back like nothings happening while Coltrane does his thing. Splendid!

JCG90 (5 months ago) Doesn't get any cooler than this. If there are someone who doesn't like this, so what?

irishballa10 (4 months ago) my two favorite jazz artists ever. this is what real jazz is, not the stuff they put on the radio today!

****

lestmbly (4 months ago) Wow! check out Miles smoking a cigarrette and holding court with others beginning at 2:29 during Trane's solo...How cool, how casual, how relaxed. I wish I were a fly on the wall and hear what he was saying. This video epitomize what I think might have been the late 50's post bop atmosphere, attitued and mystique..Life can't be any cooler then this, even today...no comparison

coax1965 (3 months ago) I love the way the bass and the trumpet work together. It is a magical piece of music that I never get tired of.

****

vandoren59 (3 months ago) Coltrane is my main inspiration as a tenor player.
but......... the only reason trane played tenor was because once when he did a job with bird( when trane was an alto player) bird stood up to do a solo and he was so amazed.. but he knew he would never be as good as bird soo he played the tenor.... but what a great tenor player... I personally believe that he is as influential on the tenor as bird was on the alto... either way though they are both great jazz-men!!!!!

arandomspectator (3 months ago) It's useless to bicker about whether Coltrane is better than Bird. They're both incredible musicians who play with more art than few ever have, and that's all that matters.

****

nebulax (3 months ago) This was from a tv special called "The Sound of Jazz". The complete show is available on DVD somewhere. I even saw a copy for sale at Borders a few years ago.

****

marcinmain (3 months ago) Miles Davis is the coolest in the world. I have never seen anything like this before.

****

r3strict3dd (2 months ago) Absolutely. I'm only 19 so I didn't have the chance to experience the brilliance that was the music scene in the 60s/70s, but music from that era is pretty much all I listen to.
What I've noticed is that in comparison from those times to now, any artistic medium (music, film, dance, etc) has been turned into only witless and mindless entertainment. The value of art in these expressive creations have been lost in transition.
It's all really depressing to see people liking Lady Gaga. Shame...

****

EMCEMITCH (3 months ago) it doesnt get much better to the brother worried bout the decline of that era---dig it---it will always be here in that wonderful form and others --u go to jazz clubs in nyc and their still alive and kickin playin the old and the new---it will never die---impossible

****

StewartCoaching (2 months ago) My, my. This is REAL soul music. My, my.

****

41jimmyp (1 month ago) at 2 minutes Miles completes what is without doubt the greatest phrases in the history of jazz and maybe music in general... and then has a cigarette... to me signifies the ambivilence of genius... and captures the title "so what" magnificently

****

leveebreaker7 (1 month ago) 'Trane's playing mesmerizes

****

cccustard (7 months ago) Not only the greatest jazz video ever, but the greatest music video ever. Nothing beats this; Coltrane just a part of it. And that says it all.

****

PaniKoralina (7 months ago) look how they perfectly understand each other... magnificent!

****

Devilo4ek (7 months ago) Begining and End is the beautifullest. Four shore, they are made from real talant and that's way this is my favorite song of coltraine.

****

are56 (6 months ago) I love jazz from this period!:).. Incredible players actually performing in studio together creating music that doesn´t give you the answer straight away. It challenges you in the sense that you really have to listen to be able to discover the feelings that strikes a chord in you:)..there is no final "truth", only what you yourself are able to find.

AngeloAnnieMate (6 months ago) It's 3:44 am. I can't sleep. Turn on my computer, look on the Portishead website on youtube, and find this jewel. Can't believe it... Coltrane is so pure, and Davis is just leting the thing go, very calm. Amazing.... Thanks to whoever posted this!... it really made my day... or night?, whatever!

hansfonteyn (6 months ago) sigh... it's like I just found out about the internet.
I've liked this music for ages, and it's soooo incredibly unexpected & good to be able to actually see it being performed, to be able to see that intensity in Davis & Coltrane's playing...
It's a joy I never would have thought to experience.

****
