Nevertheless, there is still much to be admired here, with an immediate highlight on show in Duke's superlative ballad In A Sentimental Mood which kicks off the album with some of Coltrane's trademark tremulously sensitive playing and Ellington's equally beautifully ivory tinkling. Other standout tracks for me are Duke's blues tune Stevie (dedicated to Ellington's drummer nephew Stephen James), on which Coltrane delivers a brilliant bout of blues sax, and Coltrane's own composition Big Nick (this time dedicated to ex-Dizzy Gillespie sideman, tenor sax player Big Nick Nicholas), which morphs from playful beginnings into another impressive Coltrane solo, this time on soprano sax. But my favourite track on the album is Ellington's Angelica, which builds from its notoriously jaunty and infectious theme into a true band tour-de-force, with both Duke and Coltrane excelling, along with the notably more up-front (Coltrane's regular) rhythm section of Elvin Jones pounding the drums and Jimmy Garrison on bass.
Not absolutely in the top drawer for either of these great jazz players, therefore, but certainly of considerable merit.
‘Ellington and Coltrane’ is a wonderfully relaxed but considered album. As I write I am listening to the bluesy beauty of ‘My little Brown Book’ and it is at moments like this that you hear the Ellington /Coltrane partnership really come to life.
So, like the other reviewers I rate this album as being a wonderful thing. The old seadog Ellington shows he can sit in with a young gun and still be relevant, while Coltrane demonstrates that he still has a feel for the jazz of a previous era. Highly recommended.
but this is desert island material...
Beautiful collaboration of two giants (and their collaborators); Duke is the composer of most of the material (Billy Strayhorn and Coltrane are composer of one song each) and this is probably more suitable for Duke fans (such as myself) than for hardcore late-Coltrane fans.
But, if you like Coltrane's My favorite things album, or his album with Johnny Hartman, you'll feel quite at home with this beauty.
Since the music is so simply but subtly beautiful, I don't need luxurious packaging to enjoy this (although I wouldn't mind it).
So - 5 stars for the music, the rest - I don't care about.
Still one of the great CDs of jazz, regardless.

Loved the first track in a sentimental mood which I also have by dr john. Thought that was the best track though. Prefer other coltrane albums.Published 5 months ago by Mr Michael Tolley
Uses 2 rhythm sections with Duke in each and early Coltrane (1963?).
Absolutely wonderful. It swings like mad!
I like this! The only thing I have against it is that it's obviously two totally different characters collaborating, and the don't always blend that well.Published on 4 May 2014 by K. Ãrsell

This album, although short in duration, presents a great collaboration of two superb artists. Classic tunes are given a slightly new twist.Published on 3 Feb. 2013 by Mr. K. Bowyer
