BBC Review

Traneing In (otherwise known as John Coltrane with the Red Garland Trio) is one of the classic Prestige era Coltrane dates, along with Soultrane and Blue Train. All were recorded with Garland, bassist Paul Chambers and either Art Taylor or Philly Joe Jones on drums. At the time of recording (August 1957) the saxophonist had just finished a residency at New Yorks Five Spot with Thelonious Monk and was clearly invigorated by the experience, judging by his playing here.

The title track was to become a bit of a tour de force in Coltrane live sets for some years; an altered blues powered by the cruise control swing of Chambers, Taylor and Garland features one of the saxophonist's classic performances. Though Coltrane's spiritual period was a few years off, his obsessive dissection of harmonic possibilities in his two solos points at the shapes of things to come; there's a definite sense of a man on a mission. (Famously Coltrane asked Miles how he could bring his solos to a close, feeling that there were too many ideas bubbling up inside him: Miles's suggestion was to 'take the goddamn horn out of your mouth'). For all the technical sophistication on show, Coltrane's playing still has the blues at its heart, soaking every single note he plays with a preacher's passion. Garland is joyous, swinging and intricate simultaneously throughout the session, sometimes echoing Bud Powell's effortless complexity.

As is usual with the Prestige dates, a couple of ballads are thrown in and here Coltrane demonstrates his mastery of the form; the pensive, little known "Slow Dance" is particularly gorgeous, with both Chambers and Coltrane emotionally charged. (The saxophonist obviously took Lester Young's assertion that to play a ballad with any meaning, the musician must know the lyrics). The bassist's doleful out of tempo introduction points to the stretched ballad forms that the classic quartet of Tyner, Jones, Coltrane and Garrison were to eke out a few years later, while the leader's distinctive honeyed tones could melt the coldest heart. "Bass Blues" (a Coltrane original) betrays a slight Monk influence; here Chambers is to the fore, turning out a gutsy bowed solo. The closing "Soft Lights and Sweet Music" is accelerated to a hyperspeed blur as Chambers and Taylor nudge Garland and Coltrane into furious solos; at the end someone (maybe Taylor) sighs 'whoo' as though unable to believe they made it all the way through.

One quibble; there's an appalling mastering error around 5 minutes into the title track where the tape slows down and drops out completely, which makes it a bit tricky to wholeheartedly recommend this particular issue; an essential part of any Coltrane collection nonetheless. --Peter Marsh

from the first note of traneing in to the last - a hypnotic effect from John Coltrane - in a world of throw away easy
listening, something to get your teeth into for the next ten years. First heard 1979 & still listened to in 2003.

6 CDs of live John Coltrane plus a 7" vinyl single.Bootleg quality recordings,you can hear audience chat during the performences but to me this adds to the overall ambience of these recordings that sound as if they were recorded casually in a small concert setting...rank it along side The Fall 'Totale's turns' or The Velvet Underground's 'Live 1969' or 'Max's Kansas City' live albums for similar sound quality...perfect for fans but perhaps not the starting point for a beginner...and a great price.

It's John Coltrane with The Red Garland Trio. The material was recorded in 1957. So it's not the 'classic' quartet recording.. In my opinion Coltrane really began to shine in 1958. The rest is history.. of the genius of saxophone.

A generous side of John Coltrane 20 May 2007
By Anthony Cooper - Published on
Format: Audio CD
The first thing you might notice about Traneing In is that the Red Garland Trio is listed prominently. Perhaps because of this, John Coltrane gives more space to the rhythm section than usual. Red, Paul Chambers, and Art Taylor have the stage to themselves for the first 3:43 of the CD, then Coltrane comes in. Coltrane's playing is very good throughout this CD. The program isn't very adventerous -- "Giant Steps" is still two years away -- "Traneing In" has two Coltrane originals and three minor standards. The songs range from lively midtempos ("Traneing In" & "Bass Blues") to slow ("Slow Dance" & "You Leave Me Breathless") to speedy (the misleadingly named "Soft Lights and Sweet Music"). This is a good Coltrane CD, not one of his classics, but if you've already gotten the top rank Coltranes, you should add this to your list.

A Great Album From A Truly Great Jazz Man 25 July 2001
By Timothy J. Young - Published on
Format: Audio CD
Another excellent offering from Coltrane. The Red Garland Trio backs him for this outing in the studio. It is a perfect blend of fast steady playing and smooth ballads. The outstanding playing from the RG3 keeps things tight and Coltrane provides the rest. It shows a still developing Coltrane sound that would continue to grow as he played on into the 1960s. A must for any kind of John Coltrane fan. It is yet another classic set from his days with the Prestige label. Buy it right now and play it loud! From the first listen you again realize why John Coltrane is one of the best jazz players in history. A true legend of the sax, case closed!

Was Irving pleased? 14 Mar. 2008
By Caponsacchi - Published on
Format: Audio CD
This is one of two dates featuring Coltrane with Red Garland's trio, each introducing Coltrane's "sheets of sound" approach to an Irving Berlin song. On "Soultrane" the tune is "Russian Lullaby" (though the reason that album has a slight edge is Coltrane's performance of Billy Eckstine's "I Want to Talk About You" (far more conservative but no less engaging than his fabled performance of the same tune on the later "Live at Birdland" Impulse album). On "Traneing In" the Berlin tune is "Soft Lights and Sweet Music" (which will strike those not attracted to Coltrane's sound and harmonies as a misnomer). Given Berlin's attraction throughout his career to "black music" (even Doris Day's 1950s recording of Berlin's "Shakin' the Blues Away" invites a preliminary advisory to today's sensitive listeners), I have a hunch America's greatest songwriter would have been/was flattered to have had these two songs performed by arguably the most innovative and influential jazz man of the past 50 years.

Once again, this is a recording serving as a reminder of what an enormously gifted pianist Red Garland was (as a former boxer, if he was half as nimble in the ring as on the keys, he must have excelled there as well). Regrettably, by 1965 Red was out of sight, out of mind, finishing out his career in Dallas neglected if not ignored (his playing suffering for it, as is evident on the rare recordings he was lured into making after the mid-sixties).

A doorway 17 Jun. 2009

This album, heard over a late-night AM radio in 1958, at the end of a drunken evening and back in the quiet of my dorm room, made me love jazz. There was no turning back.
Disappointingly bad digital transfer 1 Mar. 2015
By A.Y.H. - Published on
Format: Audio CD
This is one of Coltrane's better early albums, recorded about a month before Blue Train, and highlighted by a breathtaking version of the obscure ballad "Slow Dance" (complete with an original coda that anticipates "Naima") and two Coltrane originals, the Monk-like "Bass Blues" and the long blues-with-a-bridge title track. The Red Garland trio play impressively throughout, especially Paul Chambers, who throws a funny quote from "Santa Claus is Coming to Town" into the title track.

Unfortunately, this digital transfer in the RVG series is very disappointing, with a muffled sound throughout. Something seems to have gone wrong with the transfer; this CD sounds much worse than the other Coltrane CDs in the series (Coltrane, Soultrane, and Settin' the Pace all sound decent, and Dakar, Stardust, and Standard Coltrane all sound very good, though Lush Life is disappointing in a similar way) and in previous CD incarnations, including the Fearless Leader box set.
