Last Performance at Newport by John Coltrane on CD
2009 release containing John Coltrane's last ever performance at the Newport Jazz Festival, on July 2, 1966. This is the first time that this material is issued on any format! Coltrane performed three extended tunes at the festival, including a version of 'My Favorite Things' that is much freer than ever, a beautiful reading of his ballad 'Welcome' and a powerful version of 'Leo', a song he had taped in the studio six months earlier. Free Factory.
