Spiritual
John Coltrane Lyrics


Jesus
I don't wanna die alone
Jesus, oh Jesus
I don't wanna die alone

My love wasn't true
Now all I have is you

Jesus oh Jesus
I don't wanna die alone

Jesus
If you hear my last breath
Don't leave me here
Left to die a lonely death
I know I have sinned but Lord I'm
Suffering

Jesus, oh Jesus
If you hear my last breath

Jesus
I don't wanna die alone
Jesus, oh Jesus
I don't wanna die alone

My love wasn't true
Now all I have is you

Jesus, oh Jesus
I don't wanna die alone

Jesus
Jesus
All my troubles
All my pain
Will leave me
Once again

All my troubles
All my pain
It's gonna leave me once again

All my troubles
All my pain
It's gonna leave me once again
Gonna leave me
Once again

The comments are so inspiring and heartening ... so many people who love Trane's music and were/are transformed by it.

I hope it won't seem churlish for me to say that to me this version of Spiritual feels vastly inferior to the "original" release on "Coltrane Live at the Village Vanguard," from that legendary week in Nov 1961 when Coltrane (and McCoy, Eric Dolphy, Reggie Workman, Elvin, and one or two additional musicians) played and were recorded there.

That recording of Spiritual is, for me, the single most soulful and meaningful musical expression of the African-American experience and, perhaps, of any human experience, that I know (and this is from a lifelong lover of not only Trane but also Miles, Monk, Mingus, Duke, Ray Charles, Sly, Marvin, James Brown, et al.). Reggie Workman's bass playing, in particular, seems to me to not only carry the entire ensemble but also to convey an ineffably deep and knowing sense of what it is to be alive, to know struggle, and to reach for beauty. And the solos -- Trane on tenor; Eric Dolphy on bass clarinet with McCoy moving the harmony from C minor to C major, both for contrast and to support Dolphy's playfulness; McCoy in his solo taking it back to C minor and reaching one glittering climax after another; and finally Trane's second solo, on soprano -- each one tells a story that can't be put into words, it all goes straight to the heart.

And the recording quality on the Vanguard date is decidedly superior to that from Stockholm 1963. Rudy Van Gelder, who left us recently (age 90?) after famously recording hundreds of gorgeous dates for Blue Note, Impulse and other labels, captured the immediacy of a live club date at an impossibly high level of aural quality. Reggie's bass, especially, is perfectly miked and is heard perhaps more clearly and fully than the bass playing on any other Trane recording.

I apologize for going on. I've been listening to Trane since 1962 and what he and his fellow musicians achieved grows more precious to me as time passes. I hope people will give a listen to the Vanguard Spiritual.

At some point, the recogniiton of ignorance exceeds the magnitude of the ignorance itself. Now I am guilty.

“I never even thought about whether or not they understand what I'm doing . . . the emotional reaction is all that matters as long as there's some feeling of communication, it isn't necessary that it be understood.” John Coltrane
