John Coltrane Videos: Europe Live (1960-61-65)

On my way back home from Phish tour, I read a book about John Coltrane on the flight from JFK to LAX. I've been on a Coltrane kick the last few days and want to share this video I stumbled upon.

Here's over ninety minutes of John Coltrane's live performances from different venues during gigs in Germany and Belgium circa 1960, 1961, and 1965. You might recognize some classics like On Green Dolphin Street (0:03), Walkin' (9:01), Impressions (49:57), Naima (1:06:21) and a couple of versions of My Favorite Things (34:10 and 1:14:00).
