  • John Coltrane: Offering: Live at Temple University

    This set, performed just nine months before Coltrane's death, shows both the impressive openness of his late-era band and the limitations of its sound.

With all the myriad releases he created in his life, and the glut of material that came after, it's hard to believe his career in earnest only lasted about 11 years.

Live in Larissa is a double-vinyl LP (also downloadable) recorded by Birchall's quintet in Greece last year, and including more fully developed accounts of tracks from the saxophonist's World Without Form and Sacred Dimension albums, as well as Bill Lee's John Coltrane (the 17-minute opener, composed by the veteran American bassist), and Alice Coltrane's meditative dance Journey in Satchidananda.
