This tune comes from Junior’s Cookin’, recorded by Junior Cook during his tenure in the Horace Silver band.
Here’s a fast & funky one from Dr. Lonnie Smith’s Spiral.
“John Coltrane” is a tribute to the late sax master by bassist Bill Lee (father of filmmaker Spike Lee). It appears on Clifford Jordan’s 1973 double album Glass Bead Games, released on the Strata East label. I hadn’t listened to the record in years until a reader recently reminded me how good it is. It features swinging and funky compositions by everyone involved, plus soulful playing by Clifford, who channels Trane on this track while retaining his unique voice.
From Donald Byrd’s album The Cat Walk.
