Saturday Matinee: My Favorite Things by John Coltrane (Belgium '65)

Progressive Epics. Folky Meditations. Extended Jazz Improvisations. Some songs are just long, y'know? So when better to sit down and take it all in than on a Saturday with your beverage of choice in hand?

Today's Matinee: John Coltrane's recording of "My Favorite Things" in 1961 was a big hit, and it remained a live staple. But as Coltrane and band grew ever more adventurous over the decade, they took "My Favorite Things" along for wilder and wilder rides. This 1965 performance in Belgium finds the band giving this song A Love Supreme.
