21 January 2010

I'm listening to the Steve Kuhn Trio (the CD is Mostly Coltrane) last night, and I'm struck by a song that I don't think I'd ever heard before buying this CD, "Jimmy's Mode." [It's on a posthumous Coltrane release, Stellar Regions (1995), which I don't have. But which I think I'll have to buy.] On this version, Joe Lovano is playing tenor, and his performance is exquisite; the rest of the group might as well not be there. Shortly before the song begins, I turn out the lights, getting ready to head off to sleep. But the music keeps me in my seat.

Minor key. Tenor sax
Plays a somber melody.
I sit in darkness.
