Music Monday: “Grand Central” John Coltrane and Cannonball Adderley

I like collaborations in music especially when giants are involved: Ellington and Coltrane, Coltrane and Miles Davis, Waylon & Willie.

In the world of literature, such collaborations do not seem to work. I have read a few “collaborative” works. The result is seldom satisfying. The work seems disjointed and disconnected. Not so in music.

While this collaboration between two saxophone giants is admittedly more “Friday Night” than “Monday Morning” music , what the hell! Snow and cold in April leads to desperation.
