John Coltrane Coltrane's Sound on 180g LP from Rhino
Mastered from the Original Master Tapes and Expertly Pressed on 180g Vinyl: Classic Jazz Done Right!
Stellar Pressing Boasts Incredible Tones and Presence: Coltrane's Sound Finally Gets the Audiophile Treatment It's Long Deserved
Albums don't come more vetted than this 1960 classic: Coltrane's Sound was produced during the same three-day 1960 sessions that yielded Plays The Blues and My Favorite Things. Needless to say, it stands among the saxophonist's best-ever recordings, to say nothing of its fabled reputation as being part of what is arguably the most fruitful Atlantic jazz sessions ever recorded.
Made concurrently with the standards program that comprises My Favorite Things and the blues set that informs Plays the Blues, Coltrane's Sound is true to its title. The album offered the leader a chance to jump off from the traditional fare he was interpreting, and leap he does, turning equal parts darker, more intense, and dramatic than he does on the other period sets.
Several songs here function as a vehicle for pianist McCoy Tyner, who, along with drummer Elvin Jones and bassist Steve Davis, form the legendary Coltrane quartet. Through and through, Coltrane's Sound finds the headliner pushing boundaries while maintaining a striking balance between harmony, melody, and accessible themes. It, Plays the Blues, and My Favorite Things are absolutely essential.
Once again, Rhino spoils listeners with an incredible analog pressing that is hands-down the best ever released to market. Meticulously mastered from the original master tapes, the sound is dazzling, replete with rich tones, transparent images, tons of air, and wonderful separation. Prepare to be amazed as you become a firsthand witness to the greatest collective jazz session that ever went down!
