The best track on here is Coltrane's modal reworking of Body and Soul. The rest aren't that memorable or exciting to be honest.

I can't believe nobody has reviewed this before - from the first few notes this screams Jazz classic at you! OK, Coltrane made some great albums like A Love Supreme , Giant Steps and many others. But for sheer listening pleasure, I come back to this one more often than not.

Elvin Jones' polyrhythmic drumming is like nothing else before and behind Coltrane's super-confident Sax lines, the album's first track makes you feel up-beat straight away. One of the most positive openings to an album anywhere in recorded music!

So we start with Latin rhythms and are then into one of Coltrane's most beautiful ballads in "Central Park West" - such a wonderful tune that Coltrane doesn't even solo on the track.

Add in McCoy Tyner to the mix and you have one of the best Jazz bands ever at the peak of their powers making this a "must-own" album for any Jazz fan!

If you are not blown away by this - then you just haven't listended to it yet!!

A few months after leaving the Miles Davis group, John Coltrane recorded this album on October 24 & 26, 1960 during the ATLANTIC sessions that also produced 'My Favorite Things' and 'Coltrane Plays The Blues'.
Coltrane(tenor & soprano sax); McCoy Tyner(piano); Steve Davis(bass) & Elvin Jones(drums) play five memorable compositions by the leader plus distinctive versions of 'The Night Has A Thousand Eyes' & 'Body and Soul'(2 takes). 'Satellite' is a pianoless trio transformation of 'How High The Moon'.
The music on 'Coltrane's Sound', which wasn't released until June, 1964, still sounds fresh and exhilarating over 50 years later and this underrated album can be recommended to anyone who appreciates passionate and questing modern jazz.

Another wonderful, if less well known release from John Coltrane. It is a mark of the great man's output that he can produce an album this good, yet find that find that it receives less attention then it's considerable worth merits. In some ways this set from from 1960 shows the different directions that Coltrane was capable of taking. From the urgent and exploratory 'Liberia' to the beautiful ballad 'Central Park West' and the brooding modal sound of 'Satellite', it's all here to enjoy. Not only is Coltrane in top form but pianist McCoy Tyner contributed mightily throughout. Hear him on the fore mentioned 'Satellite' and hear how a musician can generate so much music from what is in essence a very simple repetitive vamp.

The measure of an album is how many gtimes it finds itself coming back to be played. Well, in the case of 'Coltranes Sound' , that is very often. Simply a very enjoyable listen. If you ever need a perk-up give the bonus track 'Body and Soul' a spin, it's worth the price of this set alone. Highly recommended. Ps: great remastering.
