My John Coltrane Collection

My John Coltrane Collection:

John Coltrane - Blue Train
John Coltrane – Blue Train

Blue Train

(Blue Note 1577, originally released 1957)

The title track “Blue Train” says it all but a great album throughout.  A great rhythm section with Kenny Drew on piano, Paul Chambers on bass, and “Philly” Joe Jones on drums.

As good as Coltrane is on tenor saxophone, it’s Curtis Fuller on trombone, and especially Lee Morgan who almost steals the show on this album.

John Coltrane - Traneing In
John Coltrane – Traneing In

John Coltrane With The Red Garland Trio – Traneing In

(Prestige 7123, originally released 1958)

A wonderful album with a beautiful Red Garland on piano, Paul Chambers on bass, and Art Taylor on drums.

Highlights include the title track “Traneing In,” “Bass Blues,” and “Soft Lights And Sweet Music.”

John Coltrane - Soultrane
John Coltrane – Soultrane

Soultrane

(Prestige 7142, originally released 1958)

Another great album from the sessions with Red Garland, Paul Chambers, and Art Taylor.

Highlights include a wonderful “Good Bait,” a great ballad in “I Want To Talk About You,” and a terrific “Russian Lullaby.”

John Coltrane - The Last Trane
John Coltrane – The Last Trane

The Last Trane

(Prestige 7378, originally released in 1965)

Titled “The Last Trane” because it was the last studio session recordings from Coltrane’s time at Prestige Records.

Despite the fact that album cover shows Coltrane playing a soprano saxophone instead of a tenor saxophone, which he played on the album, it contains four very good songs:  “Lover,” “Come Rain Or Come Shine,” “Slowtrane,” and an epic “By The Numbers.”  In fact, the album is worth it just for “By The Numbers.”  Red Garland is fantastic on piano and Coltrane’s sax solo is outstanding.

John Coltrane - Giant Stpes
John Coltrane – Giant Steps

Giant Steps

(Atlantic 1311, originally released 1960)

Excellent album featuring all original compositions by Coltrane.  “Giant Steps” and “Mr. P.C.” are classics, as well as, the song written for his actual cousin, “Cousin Mary,” and for his wife, “Naima,” are just beautiful.

An amazing album from start to finish.  John Coltrane’s “Giant Step” forward for Atlantic Records.

John Coltrane - Coltrane Jazz
John Coltrane – Coltrane Jazz

Coltrane Jazz

(Atlantic 1354, originally released 1961)

Continuing where he left off on Giant Steps, this album features some great work on “Little Old Lady,” “Village Blues,” “Fifth House,” and “Some Other Blues,”  as well as, a tribute to one of Coltrane’s idols, Sonny Rollins in “Like Sonny.”

John Coltrane - My Favorite Things
John Coltrane – My Favorite Things

My Favorite Things

(Atlantic 1361, originally released 1961)

My Favorite Things is probably my favorite Coltrane album.  His version of Rodgers & Hammerstein’s “My Favorite Things” is nothing short of beautiful and amazing.  With McCoy Tyner on piano and Elvin Jones on drums, Coltrane’s quartet is in perfect form.

Great versions of “Summertime” and “But Not For Me” are also spectacular; a great album from start to finish.

John Coltrane - Ole Coltrane
John Coltrane – Ole Coltrane

Ole’ Coltrane

(Atlantic 1373, originally released 1961)

Ole’ Coltrane features the flute and alto saxophone of George Lane, which is an alias of the great Eric Dolphy.  This is what the makes the album special.  Hearing Coltrane and Dolphy perform together.  Great album.  Period.

John Coltrane - Coltrane Plays The Blues
John Coltrane – Coltrane Plays The Blues

Coltrane Plays The Blues

(Atlantic 1382, originally released 1962)

Recorded at the same time with My Favorite Things, this album wasn’t released until after Coltrane’s record contract with Atlantic Records had expired and was an attempt for the record company to cash in on Coltrane’s success at the time.

I am so glad they did release this great album for it is nothing short of spectacular.  Every song is bluesy and wonderful.  One of my top Coltrane albums for sure.

John Coltrane - the Best Of John Coltrane
John Coltrane – The Best Of John Coltrane

The Best Of John Coltrane

(Atlantic SD 1541, originally released in 1970)

A great compilation of John Coltrane’s Atlantic years which I still think was probably his best period.

Contains the thirteen-minute “My Favorite Things,” plus “Naima,” “Giant Steps,” and “Cousin Mary,” but also “Equinox” and “Central Park West” from Coltrane’s Sound, which, similar to Coltrane Plays The Blues, was released after his contract expired with Atlantic Records.

All in all, I like this compilation very much.

John Coltrane - Coltrane
John Coltrane – Coltrane

Coltrane

(Impulse! IMP-215, originally released 1962)

This album is literally “Out Of This World”!.  From that opening track to “Soul Eyes” to “The Inch Worm” to Coltrane’s originals “Tunji” and “Miles’ Mode,” this album is a beauty on Impulse! records.

The John Coltrane Quartet is in full form with McCoy Tyner on piano, Jimmy Garrison on bass, and the very complimentary Elvin Jones on drums.  Just beautiful.

Duke Ellington & John Coltrane
Duke Ellington & John Coltrane

Duke Ellington & John Coltrane

(Impulse! IMP-166, originally released 1963)

John Coltrane’s sax on “In A Sentimental Mood” is an absolute beauty.  It is probably the best version of that song ever.  “Take The Coltrane,” “Big Nick,”, “Stevie,” and “My Little Brown Book” are also terrific.  The Duke and Trane make excellent music together.  A fantastic album by two jazz greats!

John Coltrane - A Love Supreme
John Coltrane – A Love Supreme

A Love Supreme

(Impulse! GR-155, originally released 1965)

The masterpiece.  Just a beautiful album.  Love it.

John Coltrane - A Love Supreme

R-1884530-1250039118.jpegThe Very Best Of John Coltrane

(Impulse! originally released 2001, CD only)

A good compilation from Coltrane’s Impulse! years features live versions of “Naima” and “My Favorite Things.”  Plus great tracks of “Afro Blue,” “Crescent,” “Impressions,” and the beautifully sorrow of “Alabama.”

I took the River Line NJ Transit train from Bordentown to Camden for $1.60!  I met some fellow DMB fans on the train and they offered me a beer from their cooler.  I then met up with my DMB friends Elaine along with her friends and Dan and Carol were in the same parking lot too.  It was a lot of fun tailgating and the weather was perfect!  I hung out in the lawn with Elaine and her friends just prior to the show starting where I went down to my seat in section 203.  I then met another DMB friend from Facebook in Peggy Anne!2016-06-24-dmb-01The show kicked off with an awesome version of “Squirm” as the weekend opener!  It would be followed by the most unbelievable and amazing version of “Seek Up.”  All band members including Boyd Tinsley, Jeff Coffin, and Rashawn Ross really shined and it was the best version I had ever heard.  That song flat out blew me away tonight.  “Seven” sounded great, as was “Fool To Think” which I have not heard in a long while sounded cool.

“#41” sounded beautiful tonight as did the song debut of “Plastic Girl.”  I thought it was very good.  “When The World Ends” and “The Best of What’s Around” sounded terrific tonight as well, as did “Dancing Nancies,” which did not segue into “Warehouse” even though it was played after but with the usual intro.  Jeff Coffin played another great solo for “Lover Lay Down.”

A new song DMB debuted on this tour that I could hear tonight was “Samurai Cop” which I also liked a lot.  “Grey Street”, “You and Me,” and an awesome “Pantala Naga Pampa” into “Rapunzel” ended the set.  The encore provided terrific versions of “Pig” and “All Along The Watchtower”!  It was an insane set list and an awesome time!

I got together with friends Wendy and Beth and I drove down to tailgate.  We stopped at Boyd’s Pharmacy in Bordentown, NJ to pick up tailgating supplies (see pictures below).  Luckily, we met up with Elaine and her friends again in the parking lot to tailgate.  It was a terrific time.

I saw another terrific show, this time with Wendy and Beth next to me.  We sang and danced all night!  Overall, it was not quite as good as Friday night 1 but it was still awesome!  Highlights for me included “One Sweet World,” “Belly Belly Nice,” and an amazing rendition of “Crush.”  “The Song That Jane Likes,” and a great version of “Why I Am” rocked the house as I thought about how great LeRoi Moore was and I’m sure he was there in spirit.

In addition, I loved “You Might Die Trying” and “Don’t Drink The Water” tonight as well.  I caught most of “Jimi Thing” when Wendy wasn’t feeling good so unfortunately, we had to leave and ended up missing “Sexy M.F.,” as well as the encore of “Granny,” “Ants Marching,” and “Halloween.”  I was disappointed. Nevertheless, I am very grateful I could spend two nights in Camden seeing my favorite band and hanging out with all my DMB friends!

It was a cloudy, rainy, and stormy day. It rained the whole time. I went with Dan, Carol, and Wendy. I drove my nautical blue 2012 Toyota Corolla S.

Highlights in the acoustic set for me included “The Needle and the Damage Done”, “The Stone”, an outstanding “Typical Situation”, and a full-band version of “Stay or Leave”. The electric set featured the opener of “Don’t Drink the Water”, an excellent version of “Crush”, “Rapunzel”, and “The Best of What’s Around”.

The encore was one of the weakest I ever seen with “The Space Between” and “Shake Me Like a Monkey”. Other than that, it was good, but not great.
