5.0 out of 5 stars Modern champion and an underrated mainstream fighter, 20 Jun 2010
I'm not really sure my edition is the same as this one, but here goes my review nevertheless... AND I don't know why is this a "GOLD" CD I'm writing under...

Now this really is a STRANGE experience...
First of all - teaming of Coltrane with Quinichette is one of those marvelous ideas that should have been done more often... Remember the Sonny Meets Hawk album?
Well, Hawk and Rollins were more similar in style (Hawk WAS the origin of Sonny's approach to tenor);
this is something else - Quinichette, basically, originates with later Lester Young's (cool-ish but swinging) recordings, while Coltrane was more of a verbose, noisy, fast (hot-hard, etc.) player...
It's a strange and magnificent match between an champion of the modern (Coltrane) and an underrated mainstream fighter... Musically speaking, there's no winner here.

But, to be honest, you can hear some strange clicking while Quinichette solos on several tracks, as if his saxophone was malfunctioning... It is a pity;
I can live with it (learn to ignore it), but that may not be the case with you.
I give the stars for the content of the CD (yes, the rest of the musicians are great as well), but beware of the clicking on Paul's tenor.
