Ralph J. Gleason´s Jazz Casual, the first television series devoted entirely to jazz and blues music and musicians, is now available on home video!
Unique among music television programs, Ralph Gleason´s Jazz Casual presents jazz performances and conversation in an intimate setting, giving the viewer an extraordinarily personal experience of jazz.
Produced for educational television, these entertaining and historic programs have not been seen in their entirety in more than thirty years.
John Coltrane was, perhaps, the most controversial musician in modern jazz history. His unique musical expression became one of the most influential forces in the development of free-form jazz.
From his earliest performances, Coltrane showed that he could not be restricted by the usual melodic and harmonic contraints of standard jazz motifs. His consistant search for spiritual expression through his music may have baffled some, but it not only became the core of his music, it served to influence new generations of musicians of all kinds.
Coltrane believed that music should speak for itself; that no one, including himself, could speak for it, verbally, more eloquently. Thus, this very rare episode of Ralph J. Gleason’s Jazz Casual contains no interview.
Coltrane performs here with his classic quartet: Coltrane on Tenor and Soprano Sax; McCoy Tyner on Piano; Jimmy Garrison on Bass; and Elviin Jones on Drums. Songs performed are: Afro Blue (M. Santamaria) 7:11; Alabama (J. Coltrane) 5:54; and Impressions (J. Coltrane) 13:51.
Originally recorded at KQED Studios in San Francisco, California on November 1, 1963 and first broadcast February 18, 1964 on the National Educational Television Network. Now, presented in its entirety for the first time since its original broadcast, The John Coltrane Quartet’s only known North American television appearance is now available.
