I may well have heard this modal reworking of the Rodgers & Hammerstein classic first performed not by John Coltrane but by Harry Corbett and friends. With puppets. The son of a Yorkshire coal miner, Corbett\’s early ambition to pursue a career as a musician was thwarted by deafness in one ear.
I wonder how this sat with Syd ? I like to think it might have been a favourite.
