iTunes Review

To say it's impossible to convey the beauty and importance of this 1964 work by tenor saxophonist John Coltrane is both a truism and a cop-out. Words can do it justice, just not ours. But the fact is, this recording, made with Elvin Jones (drums), McCoy Tyner (piano), and Jimmy Garrison (bass), comes at the towering peak of Coltrane's abundant creativity. Everything he had done prior leads to this very disc, and everything he did after unravels his work in a cataclysm of experimentation. But for a session in December of 1964, time stopped for John Coltrane, and the jazz world would never be the same.

Not just another reissue!

What the official review fails to mention is that this is the first time a high quality master has been used to create a CD issue of this album (recently unearthed master that was used for the European vinyl pressings). So you don't get the same thing when purchasing the single disc set.

easily one of the greatest albums and artist ever, of any genre

It seems amazing that his period of greatest activity was so short, not only because he recorded prolifically, but also because, taking advantage of his fame, the record companies that recorded him as a sideman in the 1950s frequently reissued...
