I’m pretty stoked to write a review for this album, indeed. My jazz collection is thin at best. This vinyl I have had for a long time and should listen to it more often. It’s a gorgoeus album cover, tho not award worthy. It was again printed in my birthtown of London, Ontario Canada, by Sparton. 5 songs on the entire album and someone recently paid $12.99 for this gem. It;s in mint condition. I love he inside cover as well. The review from the inside: “After repeatedly listening to this album, I felt that any comments here would be unnecessary. After all, John Coltrane and his men have something to say musically and the true jazz lovers will understand the music without detailed explaiantion. There is no need for album notes on the merit of “Trane’s” music… there will be plenty of accolades given in newspapers and magazines about the virtues of this album – BOB THIELE”

So there. How very.

wiki: John William Coltrane (also known as “Trane“; September 23, 1926 – July 17, 1967) was an American jazz saxophonist and composer. Working in thebebop and hard bop idioms early in his career, Coltrane helped pioneer the use of modes in jazz and later was at the forefront of free jazz. He organized at least fifty recording sessions as a leader during his recording career, and appeared as a sideman on many other albums, notably with trumpeter Miles Davisand pianist Thelonious Monk.

As his career progressed, Coltrane and his music took on an increasingly spiritual dimension. His second wife was pianist Alice Coltrane, and their son Ravi Coltrane is also a saxophonist. Coltrane influenced innumerable musicians, and remains one of the most significant tenor saxophonists in jazz history. He received many posthumous awards and recognitions, including canonization by the African Orthodox Church as Saint John William Coltrane. In 2007, Coltrane was awarded the Pulitzer Prize Special Citation for his “masterful improvisation, supreme musicianship and iconic centrality to the history of jazz.”
