second best jazzalbum ever made!, 30 Jun 2001
If Miles Davis' "Kind of Blue" is generally regarded als the best jazz album ever made, "My favorite things" by John Coltrane has to come second. Containing four quite contrasting songs, this album sounds as a coherent piece of music and always keeps the flow going. The first two songs "My favorite things" and the Cole Porter cover "Every time we say goodbye" are my personal favorites, because you hear John Coltrane on soprano sax and McCoy Tyner on piano who plays some brilliant solo's. The other two tracks are in a bit brighter tempo, but equally good. The best about this album however is, that because it's so stunningly perfect, you can play it anytime, anywhere, and you'll never get bored of it. On the contrary, the more you'll listen to it, the more you'll appreciate it. No serious jazz collection can be without this album. Buy it!
