David Murray Octet
Plays Trane [No Label]
Live at Chicago Jazz Festival, Grant Park, Chicago, IL, September 1, 2000

David Murray is prolific, sometimes releasing three albums at a time. Much of his discography is buried in indie labels like Black Saint, hat ART and the DIW label from Japan who supported his work when the major labels declined. Murray’s influences are mainly John Coltrane and Albert Ayler and here in this performance taken from an excellent stereo FM broadcast, we get to hear his interpretations of Coltrane, notably A Love Supreme.

This piece shows up well Murray’s expressive side, urging the crowd to say the words "a love supreme" like an evangelist whipping the crowd into a frenzy, and then alternating between "a love"to "Allah" and back to "a love supreme". "J-C, John Coltrane, Trane, J-C, Jesus Christ, J-C, Allah, a love supreme, Buddha..." This has all the whoop of free jazz exploration mixed in with the classic jazz tradition to make it a much-favored version of the Coltrane classic. Best of all, it’s live.

You can also get much of the same songs that he recorded in the studio during this period on his album Octet Plays Trane on the indie Justin Time label.
