John Coltrane – On Green Dolphin Street (Germany 1960)

A little something for my friends from John Coltrane and his friends.
What is it about this Green Dolphin Place? I guess we have to find out more about it. Again we go there and find Coltrane and more greats. Ah time travel. Who would have ever thought it was possible!
I have presented other old videos from the Green Dolphin circa 1960 with greats like Marian McPartland, John Coltrane. There was someone there to catch this and save it for us. One wonders who that was and how these films exist. There is someone in the back of this room behind the camera and equipment that I admire. Thank you unknown engineer. Thank you. And you out there, the next time you cross a bridge, thank the engineer. We are listening to landmark performances a good engineer recorded and no one wrote his name down. Same with the bridge.

John Coltrane – Tenor Sax
Wynton Kelly – Piano
