Live in Seattle (John Coltrane album)
|Live in Seattle|
|Live album by John Coltrane|
|Recorded||September 30, 1965|
The Allmusic review by Scott Yanow warns "Coltrane experts know that 1965 was the year that his music became quite atonal and, with the addition of Sanders, often very violent. This music, therefore, is not for fans of Coltrane's earlier sheets of sound period or for those who prefer jazz as melodic background music... This is innovative and difficult music that makes today's young lions (not to mention the pop saxophonists) sound very old-fashioned in comparison".

Donald Garrett claims to have played a normal (b-flat soprano) clarinet, rather than a bass-clarinet on both this session and the subsequent Om. Despite the sleevenotes remaining unchanged, auditory evidence supports his claim.
