Suzanne Pittson: Resolution: A Remembrance of John Coltrane
Things get off to a romping start with "Liberia," the switches to a sensitive ballad treatment of "My One and Only Love." The centerpiece of the CD is the Coltrane tunes "Resolution" and "Pursuance," each with an instrumental introduction and lyrics by Jeff Pittson. It is on these tunes that Pittson comes closest to invoking the spirit of Coltrane in her vocal explorations; the lyrics fit the material at hand well, too.
This CD is for those who like to dig deep into progressive jazz, not for those who want a more easy-on-the-ears vocal date. (Vineland VLCD 7755)
