John Coltrane: Bessie's BluesLily Hay Newman8/04/13 9:00pm173EditPromoteGo to permalinkI have this chart as my ringtone. Anytime anyone calls me this is what I hear. Except my phone is almost always on silent, but whatever. The point is, "Bessie's Blues" is a great tune. And it's interesting because it's the only uptempo track on Coltrane's 1964 album Crescent, which has some pretty dark stuff going on.
