  2. Not as bad as some here I guess . But why not actual Coltrane shows . The man was a tribute unto himself. Imitated but never duplicated.

  3. At least they gots it right on this one . A brother honoring another brother . Blacks are the only true Jazz masters . No honky whites , euros , spicks, wops , krauts , Micks , Jews , Arabs or Chinks can play Jazz , leave Jazz to the brothers .

  4. Good grief! I can’t (almost) work out which is worse being so narrow minded you are blind to all other great work (It’s Archie Shepp for pity’s sake still alive and paying tribute to one of the greats) or being a foul, mouthbreathing, knuckle dragging, pig ignorant racist . . . . .

    Oh, wait I got it now . . . . . . .

  5. I ‘s a black dude honky . Ain’t no racist Racists are honky whites always trying to keep the brothers down .

  6. Thing is, few Coltrane ROIOs are available as most have been commercially released. An entire unrecorded album of his 1963 quartet surfaced recently, and Impulse released nearly every note off his seminal 1964 LP Love Supreme. Mr. Shepp and McCoy Tyner are among the few jazzmen still with us who performed with the great man. Thanks for this and all shows BigO! A happy and blessed Christmas!

  7. Oh never make that mistake Jizzman! Anyone using derogatory foul terms like you did is a deeply disturbed racist mo fo!
    Ya get me bra!?

    By swappers on Dec 24, 2018

  8. Honkys are the only racists ‘ not blacks . Centuries of abuse and suppression gives us brothers and sisters the right to shove it up your ass . Got that honky ?

    I’m not a racist cos I is black!? Yeah right! ha ha ha ha ha . . . . . :)

  10. Good if you can laugh about it! I would have thought after centuries of this shit, people would learn that no form of racism works…. Especially in music. People have been trying to reverse this since the 30s (I’m thinking of Benny Goodman’s Carnegie Hall concert here). He could play jazz, and the Black guys working with him seemed to agree. So many others since, too.

  11. Blacks do in fact appear to be better at Jazz . Just saying.

    By GW on Dec 24, 2018

  12. I certainly don’t mean to sound racist but facts are facts ‘ similar to them being superior athletes. Maybe it’s genitic

    By GW on Dec 24, 2018

  13. You’re wrong. Its as simple as that. There are great examples of both black and white jazz musicians. Do I need to list them for you?

    By Trevor on Dec 25, 2018

  14. The athletic comparison is an interesting one . Jimmy the Greek Snyder was fired from his football announcing gig at CBS NFL today back in 1988 for stating the obvious. He said blacks were better athletes than whites because they were bred by slave owners to be physically superior to Caucasians . All of which is true . Somehow those statements implied that physical superiority meant mental inferiority a ocourding to many people which is not true . Black athletes are in fact physically superior which is why the NFL and NBA are .80 per cent black . That being the case ‘ why is it so hard to admit that they are better musicians as well ?

    By Victor on Dec 25, 2018

  15. I’m white by the way and even I can admit that blacks are superior in so many areas . Athletics ‘ music etc .

    By Victor on Dec 25, 2018

  16. Yeah Negros are superior. In every way . Bigger Scholongs too ‘ which is why all the hot white young baby dolls dig em . Once you’ve had black you don’t go back ‘ that say all them hot white chicks :

    By C Tony on Dec 25, 2018

  17. Negroes schlongs taste better too, and it’s like a hot fudge sundae when they explode in my mouth. Once I had black I didn’t want to go back, but I love suckin’ C, so I’m not very particular.
