With his inexhaustible technique, trademark sound, and limitless imagination, tenor and soprano saxophonist John Coltrane was one of jazz’s most dominant musicians. This collection covers his important Atlantic Records sessions recorded from 1959 to 1960 (chronicled in their entirety on Heavyweight Champion). The tunes signal an important transitional phase from Trane’s stints with Miles Davis and Thelonious Monk to his emergence as a leader in his own right. “Giant Steps” “Naima,” and “Cousin Mary”–featuring pianist Tommy Flanagan and drummer Art Taylor–crystallized Trane’s supersonic “sheets of sound” style. “Like Sonny,” an Afro-Latin dedication to his friend and contemporary Sonny Rollins with Wynton Kelly on piano, reveals Trane’s stylistic debts to Charlie Parker and Coleman Hawkins. His historic renditions of “My Shining Hour,” “Body and Soul,” “Summertime,” and “My Favorite Things” highlight Coltrane’s ability to remake a song into his own image, as well as introduce his influential sound on the soprano sax. These landmark recordings show the development of Coltrane’s “great” quartet as well as forecast his iconoclastic excursions into the outer limits of rhythm and tonality, which grew during until his death in 1967.

John Coltrane’s ballad mastery was the last of his skills to receive wide appreciation. The notion that Coltrane the balladeer could be as commanding as Coltrane the uptempo wizard or Coltrane the blues player finally gained acceptance in 1963, when this album appeared and quickly became an important exhibit in the reconsideration. Stardust consists of recordings made in 1958, showcasing Coltrane’s impressive bandmates: Wilbur Harden and a very young Freddie Hubbard on trumpet, Red Garland on piano, Paul Chambers on bass and drummers Jimmy Cobb and Art Taylor.

John William Coltrane (September 23, 1926 – July 17, 1967) was an American jazz saxophonist and composer. Working in the bebop and hard bop idioms early in his career, Coltrane helped pioneer the use of modes and was at the forefront of free jazz. He led at least fifty recording sessions and appeared on many albums by other musicians, including trumpeter Miles Davis and pianist Thelonious Monk. Over the course of his career, Coltrane’s music took on an increasingly spiritual dimension, as exemplified on his most acclaimed albums A Love Supreme (1965) and Ascension (1966). He remains one of the most influential saxophonists in music history. He received numerous posthumous awards, including a Pulitzer Prize in 2007, and was canonized by the African Orthodox Church. His second wife was pianist and harpist Alice Coltrane. The couple had three children: John Jr. (1964–1982), a bassist; Ravi (born 1965), a saxophonist; and Oran (born 1967), also a saxophonist.
