5.0 out of 5 stars One of My Favorite Things, 4 Jun. 2007
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: My Favorite Things (Audio CD)
If you are reading this review wondering where to start with Coltrane, this is a pretty good place. If the title isn't enough of a clue, the track listing should help you figure out that this is Coltrane playing standards. And playing them as melodic standards, not the free jazz you may have been fearing. It's an enormously accessible album - I defy anyone to resist the Cole Porter classic Every Time We say Goodbye - and a great showcase for Coltrane's skills. Unusually, the two "bonus tracks" even merit inclusion. It should leave you wanting to hear more Coltrane - I'd recommend "Crescent" after this - and maybe, like me you'll want to hear more of McCoy Tyner who plays piano wonderfully on both albums.

Speaking of 'accessibility', what about 'A Love Supreme'? Surely the most accessible of Coltrane's work - I speak as a blues fan who also loves the highly accessible 'My Favourite Things'.
