Editors’ Notes

John Coltrane’s only date as a leader for Blue Note has become both a popular favorite and a classic in the legendary saxophonist/composer/bandleader’s considerable discography. Recorded in 1957, Blue Train features four Coltrane originals, plus a lovely version of the standard “I’m Old Fashioned.” Trumpeter Lee Morgan, then 19 years old, is impressively able to keep up with the boss’s already-mythical flurry of notes and ideas, particularly on the opening title track. Bassist Paul Chambers and drummer Philly Joe Jones played with Coltrane in Miles Davis’ band, and pianist Kenny Drew rounds out the rhythm section. "Moment’s Notice” is Coltrane’s most enduring composition from this date, while “Locomotion” has spirited solos by both Jones and trombonist Curtis Fuller.
