Almost a collection, Impressions
contains material from 1961-1963. Two of the tracks are from his great 1961 residency at the New York Village Vanguard ("India" and "Impressions") and feature the magnificent Eric Dolphy. The remaining trio of tracks are studio dates. However despite the different recordings of time and place and with a variety of personnel, there is unity to the album with Coltrane's sound straddling the gentler music of then recent albums (Ballads
for example) and his melodic searching, which would reach one of his (many) land mark peaks with A Love Supreme
a year after the recording of "After the Rain" and "Dear Old Stockholm". "After the Rain" in fact stands as not only the best track on Impressions
but as one of his most moving and eloquent ballads he ever recorded. And he recorded quite a few! This album is a great introduction to this period, aided by a well-produced booklet. For those more acquainted with Coltrane, this is a worthy addition to the CD collection. --Phil Brett
