Format: Audio CD
An unusual album from Milt Jackson and John Coltrane who you wouldn't expect to be playing with each other. Recorded in 1959 this was made just before 'Giant Steps', but its completely different from that classic album.

With Jackson alongside Coltrane the whole album takes a much more bluesy turn especially when Jackson is playing, and indeed there a couple of blues tracks on the album. So when you hear Jackson on these tracks its the same Jackson who played with the MJQ and made a number of great albums with Oscar Peterson. However, Coltrane was pushing the boundaries at this stage, so the contrast between his solo on say 'The Late Late Blues' and Jackson's is quite dramatic.

The supporting cast is, as you would expect top notch. On drums is Connie Kay, Bass is Paul Chambers and Piano is Hank Jones.

My favourite track is 'Be-Bop', a Dizzy Gillespie tune taken at a frightningly fast tempo, on which Jackson swings through his solo with amazing panache and Coltrane (obviously in practise for things to come) just blasts through the chord sequence like it was a 12 bar (which its not).

A great album that improves everytime you listen to it.

When this record first came out it didn't get very good reviews. It was thought to be fairly sub-standard Coltrane, playing without his usual force, and with a rhythm section that didn't give him adequate support. In fact, it is a very good record indeed. The problem may have been that it was recorded just before 'Giant Steps' but not released until some time later, by which time a sea change had taken place in Coltrane's style and he just wasn't playing this way any more. He made much fine music before that change and this disc fits well into that body of work.
Trane plays throughout with an easy loping swing. He was always a superb ballad player and excels on 'Stairway To The Stars' and 'The Night We Called It A Day'. He unleashes his formidable technique on the fast 'Be-Bop' and plays convincingly in a bluesy manner on the remaining tunes, not all of which are blues.
The blues feel to the disc comes mainly from Milt Jackson, who was always a master of that style. He plays well throughout and there is little point in singling out individual tracks. Hank Jones is his usual impeccable self and Paul Chambers a tower of rhythmic strength on bass. Connie Kay suffered some flack when this was first issued but plays well, lightly swinging and punctuating rarely but always to the point.
There are better Trane records around, such as 'Blue Trane', but this is a pleasing example of his work pre 'Giant Steps' and the other four musicians can hardly be bettered, individually or together.

The album is great, but there was no mention in the description that this was the Japanese version of the album.

I already have this CD in the Atlantic re-release. The CD didn't play very well on my laptop so I decided to purchase this one. It arrived on time promptly - very good ! However, the information on the cover insert and the outer cover was all in CHINESE !!
Fortunately the Atlantic CD insert has all the information in English. So lucky me .... However, the music content, in my opinion, is quality. Having seen both of these artists live, many moons ago it's good to have these guys on CD. Well worth a buy even if you don't speak Chinese !!!!

If you're into jazz then youll probably know this album. If you dont then you should. Good sound quality for a standard CD.
