5.0 out of 5 stars An Introduction to Saxophone Giant John Coltrane 30 Jun 2012
By D.R.L. - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
~ The Concord Music Group is home to some of the great jazz labels, including Prestige, Contemporary, Riverside, Milestone, Fantasy and Pablo. With their new "The Very Best Of" series, the Concord Group offers an affordable single-disc introduction to five of the most influential jazz musicians of all time.
~ "The Very Best of John Coltrane" offers ten tracks from eight albums Coltrane cut for Prestige Records between 1956 and 1958. It was during this period that Coltrane found his own deep, dark, blues-based voice. These recordings feature Coltrane as leader at a time when he was also a member of the famous Miles Davis Quintet. While Coltrane's playing could often be heavy and densely layered, he could also be exuberant as evidenced by his performance on "I Hear a Rhapsody." The only Coltrane composition on this CD is "Traneing In" from 1957. Thelonious Monk contributes one composition, "Nutty", on which he plays piano. Other compositions originate from the pen of Cole Porter ("I Love You") and the team of Sigmund Romberg and Oscar Hammerstein II ("Lover, Come Back to Me.") Pianists Tadd Dameron and Tommy Flanagan, offer originals and play on this CD. Coltrane biographer Ashley Kahn supplies informative liner notes placing these early tracks in perspective with the artist's career.
~ Highly recommended as a single-CD introduction to the early creative artistry of John Coltrane.

3.0 out of 5 stars Know what you're getting 24 July 2012
By A.Y.H. - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Any collection presenting itself as "The Very Best of John Coltrane" is designed to mislead. Coltrane's most important work is dispersed among at least five separate companies which, despite the countless corporate mergers and acquisitions in the music business of the last half-century, remain separate to this day.

This CD concentrates on material from the first two years of Coltrane's solo career. Because the label didn't offer favorable publishing terms, Coltrane didn't record many originals during this time.

The track selection of this compilation is more or less random, almost like a fan's private mix tape. The tunes and performances are representative of what Coltrane was doing during this period, but I don't think they represent the best of it.

If you're looking for a better survey of this period, the same label put out a more generous collection a short while ago, called The Definitive John Coltrane on Prestige & Riverside.
