Denys Baptiste - The Late Trane (Edition)

Star rating: 
3

It's refreshing to hear John Coltrane's later and lesser known work revisited, even more so when said work is creatively reframed, often in more accessible settings. British saxophonist Denys Baptiste makes a fine job of it given that he, like Coltrane, is a reedsman with a sensitive and spiritual approach. Nikki Yeoh's painterly piano helps, of course, especially on the breathtaking Peace on Earth which, like many of the nine other tracks, soars with otherworldly grace.
