「プロミスド・ランド=理想郷」

非暴力と言う至難の業を行使しながら公民権獲得に成功したキング牧師はその年ノーベル平和賞を受賞。1964年12月10日、ノルウェーのオスロでの授賞式典の日*1、コルトレーンはRVGスタジオに二日連続でこもり、『至上の愛』の発展系を模索していた。*2ベースが二人にティンバレス、コンガなど複数のパーカッションを加えた複合リズムを念頭に置いていたが、その日はレギュラーの黄金カルテット(コルトレーン(ts)、マッコイ・タイナー(p)、ジミー・ギャリソン(b)、エルヴィン・ジョーンズ(ds))に、アーチー・シェップ(ts)アート・デイヴィス(b)を加えて録音した。
残念ながら満足な結果が得られずに発売を断念したが、2002年になってそのうち幾つかの未発表テイクのリリースは記憶に新しい。オリジナルLP盤に記された自筆ライナーノーツは、自身の懺悔*3と神への讃歌、友人知人へ感謝の念に溢れている。

ALS Deluxe Edition 314 589 945-2
A Love Supreme Deluxe Edition Verve Impulse! 314 589 945-2
英アビーロード・スタジオに保管されていたオリジナルマスター・テープにより格段に音質向上。1964年12月9日と10日両録音を世界初収録。

 『至上の愛』や日本公演で希求した「プロミスド・ランド」とは、どのようなものであったのだろう?
岩波新書『コルトレーン:ジャズの殉教者』でも、キーワードとして用いていた「プロミスド・ランド=自由が約束された土地=理想郷」。その語源を説明してみたい。
  旧約聖書の中に登場し、「モーゼが奴隷として苦しむヘブライの民をエジプトから連れ出し、エイブラハムの子孫に与える<自由が約束された土地=カナン>へ導く」を比喩している。モーゼ自身は、カナンを目前にしながらメリバの泉で神の命令を守らなかったことから、約束の地へたどり着くことを許されなかった。しかし、ネボ山(ビスガの山頂)から約束の地を見渡すことだけは神に許される。が、そこへ足を踏み入れることなくモーゼは亡くなる。
  マーティン・ルーサー・キング・ジュニア牧師が1968年4月4日暗殺される前日、最後の演説として知られる「私は、山の頂に登った」に出てくる目的地「プロミスド・ランド」は、人種間の平等を希求した「理想郷」なのである。

「Martin Luther King's last speech (Eng. Subtitles)」
https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=endscreen&v=pojmA6b1ZiY&NR=1

この演説ほど壮絶なものはない。
明日に(実際)死が迫っていることを予言するかのように「私は皆さんと一緒に、約束の地には行けない」と力強く語っています。演説後、後ずさりし椅子に倒れ込むのは、当日の体調がすぐれなかったにもかかわらず急遽演説の依頼を承諾し、即興で成したからと言われています。何度見ても涙が止まりません。壮絶な最期です。
  コルトレーンも64年の公民権法制定で「理想郷」を見たのだが、実際平等になるには、それから何年も要する。すなわちコルトレーンが実際「理想郷」に足を踏み入れる前に亡くなってしまうのは、モーゼの場合、キング牧師の場合、そしてジョン・レノンの場合(Imagineは1971年発売)と酷似している。
ベトナム戦争激化、東西緊張(共産圏、社会主義圏との軋轢)など世界情勢はボタンひとつで核戦争へと発展するかのような危険性をはらんでいた。そのような情勢の中、理想郷を目指して力いっぱい“地球の平和”を演奏して回った66年夏の日本。我々はコルトレーンの遺志を決して忘れてはならない。*3

'Chasing Trane: The John Coltrane Documentary'

pray for victim of Atomic Bomb Nagasaki 66-0714AB










Film Review | TIFF 2016
http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/review/chasing-trane-john-coltrane-documentary-928451

Director John Scheinfeld's doc is a comprehensive, engrossing and, it’s tempting to say, worshipful account of the life of the music titan.

A music titan gets his cinematic due in Chasing Trane, a comprehensive, engrossing and, it’s tempting to say, worshipful account of the life of John Coltrane, the alto sax player and composer most aficionados would agree deserves a spot on the jazz equivalent of Mount Rushmore. Smartly shaped and vigorously told by prolific documentarian John Scheinfeld (Who Is Harry Nilsson, The U.S. vs. John Lennon), the film bulges with insights offered by everyone from family members and close collaborators to the likes of Cornel West and Bill Clinton. The incessant rush of the innovator’s music should spike the interest of younger viewers insufficiently exposed to the man’s short career, pointing to an extensive life in all markets, domestic and international, wherever interest in great jazz still flourishes.

Although Coltrane died very young, at 40, in 1967 of liver cancer, his life nonetheless described a significant exploratory arc driven by an accelerating need to go ever-further to the outer reaches of musical expression. “He kind of did everything Picasso did, in about 50 years less time,” the sax-playing former president observes, and the film offer sufficient samples from Coltrane's different phases to back up the statement.

After establishing the man’s importance via clips of him playing in Miles Davis’ seminal quintet in 1957, a period marked by a destructive excess of booze and heroin, Scheinfeld does the best he can with minimal material to document Coltrane’s impoverished early years in North Carolina and, by age 7, Philadelphia. He served in the Navy during WWII, met Charlie Parker, played all the time and hit the big leagues when he was invited to join Dizzy Gillespie’s band. Eventually, Coltrane ran afoul of Dizzy’s strict no-drugs policy, eventually saving himself by holing up alone and enduring a painful withdrawal by going cold turkey.

When he came out the other end, he obviously didn’t know he only had a decade left to do his life’s work, but even if he had known he couldn’t have been more prolific. He played with Thelonius Monk’s band, then rejoined Davis on the epochal Kind of Blue in 1959. Forming his own quartet the following year, he had enormous successes with the aptly named Giant Steps and the mainstream hit "My Favorite Things," and restlessly moved through various phases, notably what was called “free jazz” and then a spiritual period. He released at least 60 LPs in his lifetime.

Along with packing in as much music as possible, Scheinfeld has gone to great lengths to assemble a stellar cast of witnesses and commentators, who not only offer valuable insights into the subject’s life and work, but also provide solid context concerning historical, racial and cultural currents. The self-appointed star of this realm is Cornel West, whose showboating, over-the-top oratorical style provokes laughs as well as insights.

As time went by, another observer stresses, Coltrane was preoccupied with “seeking of universal truth”; in fellow sax man Wayne Shorter’s view, his colleague was continually outgrowing what he had just done in his persistent exploration of a “spiritual consciousness.” Or, as Carlos Santana eloquently and precisely puts it here, “John Coltrane rearranges jazz’s nuclear structure.”

The abundance of choice performance footage here provides strong evidence for even the greatest claims made by the commentators, while Denzel Washington gets in a few words edgewise as he reads some of the subject’s own writings. The filmmaker has cast his net far and wide to obtain performance and background footage, with evocative and satisfying results.
