John Coltrane at the Half Note

The New York Times has an interesting article interviewing Ravi Coltrane about the release of John Coltrane's One Up One Down:

"This Half Note material really comes at a summit," Mr. Coltrane said by phone recently from Rotterdam, the Netherlands, where he was on tour. "It's the high point of a sound that the band had been cultivating, basically, since 1961. The music that was recorded there comes at the strongest point of that band, playing that sound. Right after that, they start changing and going other places."

There's also a short video clip of Ben Ratliff reviewing the album here.
