    one more thing I would like to add: when a chord progression has an interesting turn, that is a nice surprise and both the player and the listener enjoy it. However if the _very_ same turn repeats both within the progression, and then connecting back into itself, so practically endlessly, that is everything but not surprise and not interesting, it is the exact opposite: boring.

    I wouldn’t be surprised if Joe wasn’t all that keen on it but maybe Norman Granz suggested it (there is a Chick Corea tune on the same album, also that annoying tune ‘Feelings’, so maybe they were trying to do something a little different).

    I didn’t like Joe’s version much when I first got the album (I was into all the exciting heavy Coltrane stuff etc) but I quite like it now. In fact I had a go at it myself this morning, inspired by Joe’s version, kind of bossa feel and tempo with a few single lines thrown in. Might try and work it up into a solo piece.

    Trane Changes are not created to be liked...

    they are to be experienced, terrified, developed, denied ... whatever .. but not to be liked...


    )))

    Seriously .. .Trane is probably one of the musicians in jazz for whom changes is only the very very starting point of the most unexpected and unpredictable journey.
    I am sure he did not like those changes himself... it was not about liking... he designed them to give himself a routing or mapping... to jump into the things he really cared to achieve with music.

    this is a great answer, at least the first part. However this particular case the promise was not fulfilled, and that is the point. Listening the original recording, especially the solos, there is nothing unexpected, nothing unpredictable, just speedy endless repetitions. We barely can not call it even a "journey".

    so would this be more or less of a challenge to play vs JC style

    I LOVE Trane changes. Believe it or not I woke up this morning thinking about them. I spent a long time practicing them. And I thought I need to revisit playing them. To me they're most exciting when he plays them as substitutes over regular changes.

    I think Trane put some of those changes into the bridge on his recording of Body and Soul, then later on Dexter Gordon adopted it too.

    just something I noticed..

    The Major 3rd movement of the major chords..(augmented theory) is what gives GS its unique flavor.. Flamenco Sketches on the Kind of Blue album (which was released in the same year that GS was recorded I think) you will hear some use of the major 3rd flavor.


    Bill Evans most likely wrote that tune ..as well as Blue in Green..but both are credited to Miles..now it could have been an influence that JC used in GS...

    Trane said in one of the interviews how much famous Hawk's record of Body and Soul influenced him.. he said he never picked up anything from it litterally but he just kept listtneing it over and over again.

    Joe's version is really fun to listen to because he does quite an opposite thing to what those changes were made for imho...

    He does his best to find and outline traditional melodic and harmonic connections (because it's his way of musical thinking)... and actually succeds in it.

    Also of course the bridge of ‘Have You Met Miss Jones’ contains some ‘giant steps’ type changes and Coltrane must have been familiar with it. It would be interesting to hear him play it but I don’t think he ever recorded it.

    Obviously, there's nothing wrong with the changes. It's just that the harmonic rhythm at that tempo is insane. The Trane players that concentrate soley on GS wind up sounding very mechanical. Some of them can be replaced...

    Lots of talented youngsters! What a great sound from a Fender...

    Also, excellent colour coordination. Strikes me as a good reason to get a large collection of guitars of different colours, so that you can match your outfit. #justifications.

    I guess that you know Joey Alexander was self taught at aged 6 , listening to Bill Evans, and other piano greats ,from his Father's
    record collection, I first heard him aged 10 , bought his CD ," My Favourite Things" released in 2015 and Wynton Marsalis calls
    him , " His Hero" if there was ever a a musical genius , JA is one.
