EDITORS’ NOTES

After his tenure with Miles, this saxophonist moved to the Impulse! label with a full head of steam. Trane’s classic quartet with pianist McCoy Tyner, bassist Jimmy Garrison, and drummer Elvin Jones could handle all of his moves: yearning, modal compositions (“A Love Supreme, Pt. 1 (Acknowledgement)”), mournful ballads (“Crescent”), and fiery explorations of tunes like “Afro-Blue (Live At Birdland 1963).” Always in search of a new intensity, Coltrane pushed his tone to extremes, but the soulful, lyrical grace of his playing is always present.

Amazing!

This is one amazing jazz album. There is always something about jazz that really makes you just want to go relax. If you want a great album and some amazing music to listen to this is the one, you can never go wrong with this genre, there is so many talented artists in jazz and so many different styles, this is just one style, but one great example. Support the artists that deserve the money, help them to keep going, and keep coming out with new albums, and always support the greats.

For the drifting soul

His music is rich with human emotion, improvisation, and essence of the soul. Money well spent.
