MICHAEL JORDAN and JOHN COLTRANE • AMEN

One of the site owner/admistrator’s (at least top 3) most favorite YouTube videos of all-time… it has been awhile since I posted it, but just seemed appropriate right now… I pray all of you keep healthy and safe during this extremely difficult time for humanity… blessings…

(From the youtube liner notes):

” ‘Amen’, from the album Sun Ship…

Revisiting old Jordan clips around the same time as this Trane, I suddenly felt a deep connection there and was curious to see how footage would by chance combine, align and double up in spirit and time with the music. Seeing the moves, invention and control of Jordan alongside the feel, pacing and power of this particular track (one of the last by this quartet, recorded August 26, 1965)… Heroes unstoppable at the top of their game, leading their teams. The message of that zone, rhythm, strength and ORIGINALITY. Athletes of the heart! We indulge…

Amen.
