Thank You, John! by Various Artists
Released: Aug 1997
Label: Arkadia Jazz
An impressive roster of modern jazz musicians pay tribute to the mighty John Coltrane. Since Coltrane was a such a diverse artist its nice to see that this set showcases not just the earth-shattering explorer but also the songwriter, the gentle balladeer and the giving group leader. Coltrane disciple David Leibman earned a Grammy nomination for his fine reading of "My Favorite Things" while the still sublime Benny Golsen and Billy Taylor dazzle by doing things their own, sweet way. The final number is a rap riff on Trane -- the sentiments are nice though you may not listen to it as often as the proceeding nine cuts.
