"Ev'rytime We Say Goodbye" is a lush tune, a cover of the Cole Porter song. It's a great reminder that while Trane was known as being a hugely powerful sax player, he always loved playing ballads. It's not quite up to "After The Rain" from "Impressions", perhaps his greatest ballad, but it's not far off for its sheer emotive quality, similar to "Blues In Green" from Davis' "Kind Of Blue" (which Trane played on, of course).
"But Not For Me" and "Summertime" are more energetic, with the latter having a bouncy exhuberance, and the former a manic compulsiveness.Read more ›
With Coltrane(tenor & soprano sax) were pianist McCoy Tyner; bassist Steve Davis & drummer Elvin Jones who'd recently joined Coltrane's band.
Coltrane's playing is powerful and intensely moving supported by a superb rhythm section on four standards. Highlight, inevitably, is Trane's hypnotic 13-minute work-out on 'My Favorite Things' which he returned to again and again for the rest of his career. There's also a fine version of Gershwin's 'Summertime' with Trane on tenor.
This 2005 ATLANTIC MASTERS edition includes the two-part single of 'My Favorite Thing' as a bonus.
'My Favorite Things' still sounds fresh and exhilarating over 50 years later and is an essential item in any Coltrane collection.
This album is probably at its most conventional during the sublime, and relatively concise, interpretation of Everytime We Say Goodbye (which, given that it is one of my all-time favourite songs was never going to miss the target). Coltrane's soprano playing here is in its most deliberate and melody-following mode, which simply (and strangely) serves to make it all the more emotionally devastating, and provides a perfect platform for McCoy Tyner's equally impressive solo. Of course, Coltrane's version of the title song, apart from being an amazing interpretation of what is essentially The Sound Of Music's childlike ditty, was the piece of music that brought Coltrane to more popular attention and was to feature as an integral part of his live performances.Read more ›
