Added DiffLines:

* RearrangeTheSong: Coltrane did this for his covers, and then when he performed these tracks live, the arrangements often changed significantly. This is nothing new for jazz, but Coltrane took it to a much further extent than many other jazz musicians did - see DarkerAndEdgier above.


** SerialEscalation: Live versions could take this even further, though the mood of the track could vary widely from night to night. Probably none were darker or edgier than the ''Olatunji Concert'' version, though; it was Coltrane's final recorded performance (he performed once more, but no known recordings of the performance exist), and he gave the song a particularly discordant free jazz arrangement that probably, even today, reaches 10, if not [[UpToEleven 11]] on the MohsScaleOfRockAndMetalHardness, which is only made more extreme by the lo-fi recording quality.

* DarkerAndEdgier: The TitleTrack. Coltrane took a perky little Rodgers and Hammerstein ditty from ''The Sound of Music'' and turned it into something a critic described as a "hypnotic eastern dervish dance" lasting more than 13 minutes. Live versions could take this even further, though the mood of the track could vary widely from night to night.

Added DiffLines:

* EpicRocking: "My Favorite Things". A Coltrane staple, seen particularly in the TitleTrack. We say again: more than 13 minutes!minutes! (13:41, to be precise.) "Summertime" and "But Not for Me" count as well, running 11:31 and 9:34 respectively. (At 5:39, "Ev'ry Time We Say Goodbye" just barely misses the six-minute cutoff.) Put another way, the album runs for nearly 41 minutes despite containing only four tracks, making the mean song length more than 10 minutes long. Also, live versions of these tracks could stretch out much longer than their studio counterparts. Versions of the title track exist which exceed half an hour in length.
