When Coltrane Calls Session 1: Fierce Compassion

When Coltrane Calls Session 1: Fierce Compassion


"Thank you John Coltrane for staying the course and keeping it completely real, as we all must do!" -Tisziji Muñoz

"So the challenge at this recording was to respond to the spirit of Coltrane, without being imitative or looking back. I know that to play effectively with Tisziji, it is imperative that one be 100% in the Now. A few of Trane's compositions were played, most reverently by Lam Sobo on piano. These beautiful pieces set a tone of prayer and gratitude. They were a great springboard for Tisziji's cataclysmic Heart Fire Storm sonic meditations. Like Coltrane, Tisziji has the presence and wisdom to elicit the highest, deepest Spirit core reality from the musicians present." -Ra Kalam Bob Moses
