John Coltrane (1926-67) was the most relentlessly exploratory musician in jazz history. He was always searching, seeking to take his music further in what he quite consciously viewed as a spiritual quest. In terms of public recognition, this quest began relatively late. The tenor saxophonist, a native of North Carolina who later moved to Philadelphia, was 28 when he joined the Miles Davis ... Read more in Amazon's John Coltrane Store

Format: Audio CD
The new generation of jazz listeners have absolutely no excuse for not checking out the recorded legacies of the music's earlier giants. Cheap-priced labels like Avid, Real Gone Jazz and the ridiculously budget-friendly Properbox series have all made collecting a whole lot easier of late, but for those of us who grew up in the late 1980's/early 1990's the Italian Giants of Jazz label were a godsend. Imported to the UK, this impressive series of albums, with their distinctive painted cover art, weren't limited by UK copyright rules, hence the fact that by the Nineties their output had nudged up to the post-bop work of figures like Coltrane.
This album was, in fact, the second Coltrane CD I ever purchased (the first was Meditations, which I found simply baffling), brought on a Saturday afternoon at my local independent record shop for something like a fiver. But what an introduction! It covers 1956 to 1957, taking in Coltrane's participation in sessions with Miles Davis, Tadd Dameron and Thelonious Monk as well as half of his debut album on Prestige, Coltrane. Everyone knows this music, but it's worth adding that for years this issue was the only widely available CD to include Miles Davis version of Sweet Sue, from the Leonard Bernstein Columbia album What Is Jazz?, containing one of Coltrane's best early solos. Playing this CD through again after all these years, I'm still struck by it. Also, listening to the versions of Soultrane and Ruby My Dear, I'm minded to agree with Ornette Coleman's description of Coltrane as the most lyrical player in jazz. It's heart-melting stuff indeed.

John Coltrane 1956 & 1957: Trio, Quartet, Quintet, Sextet 15 July 2011
By karlojazz - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
This excellent compilation of tunes on the Giants of Jazz label featuring John Coltrane on tenor saxophone focuses on recordings made fairly early in his illustrious career during the years 1956 -1957. One advantage of this collection is that it includes some of Coltrane's lesser-known works, such as the two songs from the 1956 album Mating Call made with pianist/composer Tadd Dameron.

The CD's eleven tracks span a variety of groups from trio to sextet as follows:

Trane's Blues
Miles Davis Quintet
May, 11, 1956

Sweet Sue
Miles Davis Quintet
September 10, 1956

Mating Call
Tadd Dameron Quartet
November 30, 1956

Monk's Mood
Thelonious Monk Trio
April 16, 1957

Chronic Blues
While My Lady Sleeps
Straight Street
John Coltrane Sextet
May 31, 1957

John Coltrane Sextet
May 31, 1957

Ruby My Dear
Thelonious Monk Quartet
July, 1957

Of the eleven songs, three were written by Coltrane: Trane's Blues, Chronic Blues, and Straight Street. Thelonious Monk also composed three songs: Monk's Mood, Ruby My Dear, and Nutty.

The pianists in the various groups are some of the best-known musicians from the late 1950s: besides Monk himself, one hears Red Garland, Mal Waldron, and Tadd Dameron.

Sound quality is generally good throughout the entire album and the liner notes present an informative chronology of the significant events in Coltrane's musical life. The liner notes also list the personnel for each track, a very helpful addition for anyone wishing to learn more about the making of this music.

Although devoted Coltrane fans probably have many, if not all, of these tracks on their original recordings, this compilation provides a useful introduction to some of Coltrane's best recordings from 1956 and 1957 and it might also help fill out gaps, such as the aforementioned Dameron/Coltrane record, in others' collections of Coltrane's total output. Available at a very low price, this compilation is highly recommended.
