[ Filide ; (1958) ]

ds- Max Roach
bs- Art Davis
ts- George Coleman
tr- Booker Little
tu- Ray Draper

Song by Ray Draper and version from a self titled album with Coltrane can be found here. But this is my preferred. The Latin styled melody really pops to life with the loosely directed trumpet line from Booker Little when paired with Roach's breathable rhythm. And then add the contrasting maudlin, slightly vaudeville low brass of Draper's tuba.. jesus baby... overall emotional tone becomes music listenable ad infinitum...
