Usually quite judicious in my praise, I must start nonetheless by saying that this is one of the greatest jazz albums of all time (truly among the ranks of, if you're curious as to my frame of reference, Brubeck's "Time Out," Ella's 'Mack the Knife' Berlin concert, Trane's "My Favorite Things," Miles' "Kind of Blue," and "Porgy and Bess," Sonny Rollins' "Saxophone Colossus," and perhaps Bill Evans' "Conversations with Myself"). Obscure and almost unknown up through his death and for several years thereafter, Johnny Hartman's music has been discovered by many in an upswing which.. probably can be traced to the use of several of his tracks in the otherwise forgettable film version of "Bridges of Madison County." On Hartman's other recordings, it seems as if his producers could not decide whether he was the next Nat King Cole or was a jazz balladeer. This is where he belongs. His luscious, resonant bass (let's not kid ourselves, Hartman's got more of what it takes than a mere baritone) is, on this record, particularly skillful and tremendously expressive. Coltrane, likewise is wonderfully restrained for a point so far along in his career, and McCoy Tyner and the rest provide a splendid backdrop.

First of all, the songs on the CD's are American classics, written by the likes of Irving Berlin, Sammy Cahn, Richard Rodgers, and Billy Strayhorn. The songs are of a lyrical and structural quality that is so striking when compared to today's music.
Then, Johnny Hartman's beautiful, deep baritone is stunning! How did Hartman not become one of America's great voices? Why is he still so obscure? When you hear him sing these songs you will instantly recognize him for what he was, an unforgettable singer who makes the songs his own and sings with an intimacy that is truly remarkable.
As if that weren't enough, the jazz trio features the greatest sax player ever, John Coltrane. The music was recorded in an era of minimalistic production - you hear only Hartman's voice and the Jazz trio. And when Coltrane blows his sax, you feel the emotion of his music.
Add it all up, and it is a breathtakingly romantic CD that gets better each time you listen. You won't really know this music until you've heard it 100 times.

A perfect marriage of rich sounds. Hartman's superb deep brown vocals are perfectly matched by the silky smooth tenor sax sound of Coltraine. Accompaniment is supportive yet subtle and only those without a soul will fail to float into a dreamy ecstacy whilst litening.

... and, wow, it really is...

Showing Coltrane's mellow and romantic side (also seen on his "My Favorite Things"), this album brings the great and precise vocalist Hartman into Coltrane's classical band and together they create something so delicate and subtle I hardly believed it when I heard it. This means that Tyner's intelligent piano and Garrison's and Jones' unobtrusive rhythmical support are also essential for this musical triumph.

Is it modern jazz? Is it musically conservative? Answers to both questions should probably be in the affirmative; great music is often too complex to be placed in neatly divided groups...

Coltrane's tone is, I must admit, far from being among my favorite sounds in jazz, but on this album even that aspect of his music pleases me very much. He is as light and full of innuendos as the tone of Johnny Hodges, Paul Desmond and Lester Young at their most breazy and mellow, but at the same time the Trane is still strong and autoritative in creating his solos and obligattos.

If I repeat some words in this clumsy description, it is not just because English is not my mother tongue: no language can truly explain these subtle sounds and emotions; only a lyrical poem could suffice (and I'm no poet).
Just listen how Hartman merges with Coltrane and his band from the beginning of "You are too beautiful ...".
A true object of beauty.

When I purchased this album, as part of the essential John Coltrane canon, on the Impulse label, I had never heard of singer Johnny Hartman, but this turned out to be a most welcome discovery. He is a ballad singer, with an exquisitely gentle and lilting tone, albeit with a slight 20-a-day touch, and it is a voice that comes across very well on this recording. The regular John Coltrane quartet provides a suitably laid-back `after hours' accompaniment, and the whole thing works very well. In the modern parlance, this is probably the ultimate `chill-out' album; it's smoother than a well-oiled seal, and if you want to relax, then just put this CD on, and you'll not even need that whisky and soda.

If you loved Coltranes' 'Ballads' album and have a taste for sophisticated crooners such as Billy Eckstein ,Nat 'King' Cole and Mel Torme then you must ask yourself, have I missed a trick by not having this disc in my collection? The answer to that question is surely 'Yes'! Luckily, this is an omission that soon can be redressed.

'Coltrane and Hartman' (1963)puts the great saxophonist with his rhythm section (McCoy Tyner: piano /Jimmy Garrison: bass/ Elvin Jones: drums) in the company of Johnny Hartman, a singer with a penchant for lush romantic ballads. Hartman's voice has a deep-dark richness that finds its full beauty in languid melancholic tunes, where longing and nostalgia are the order of the day. An unlikely paring it might seem but like the Tony Bennett /Bill Evans collaborations, the results are a revelation. It works because Coltrane holds back on the fireworks, content to provide little intros or solos that veer little from the main melody. While Tyner provides restrained accompaniment - a few flourishes here or there but essentially his task to tastefully and unobtrusively support the vocalist, which on tunes like 'You Are Too Beautiful' he does to superb effect. In other words Coltrane are in sympathy with the singer, not at war with him.

Hartman sings in a simple, unaffected style that is all about the feelings expressed in the song. Listen to him but for a short while and you too will be entranced! Its a real shame that Hartman isn't better known, because then more people could get to know and love this beautiful set. So to sum up: great songs, great performances and a great production job. Who could ask for more?

Hardened Jazz fan or not, lovers of romantic music should approach this disc with open hands (and wallets). Recommended.
