    Is the line up of musicians listed correctly here? Seems wrong to me
    • One of my favorite Coltrane releases. Africa is such a strong track on it's own that if they reissued this as a 3" CD I'd still buy it for $15. It's a great example of Modal/Bop jazz and you never get bored through out the 16+ minutes. His take on Greensleeves is just as great. He starts off with the main movement of the traditional track, then goes into his own free style saxophone, then back with the original movement to end. It follows with another great track, Blues Minor. This release is a great starting point for any new Coltrane fan because it was a point were Coltrane started to do his own thing as an artist and he was also making statements within his albums as well, and Impulse! was letting him.
