Increasing The Peace With John Coltrane

Jan 21st, 2008 // 3 Comments


Happy MLK Day, everyone. We’re out of here, so as we go please enjoy this ’65 European performance of a peaceful personal fave by the Coltrane quartet. If you’d prefer something a little more specifically MLK-related, well, there’s always the song every blog posts this time of year, “By The Time I Get To Arizona”, its divided sympathies as confusing to me now as when I was a junior high history student first digging on the concept of “non-violent resistance.” [YouTube]

    Hey, what do you know? I was just telling someone a few days ago that I want this song played at my funeral.
