John Coltrane
Both Directions at Once: The Lost Album

It's somewhat of a holy grail of jazz, this. Both Directions at Once: The Lost Album is just that, an until-very-recently unknown and unheard studio album by the great John Coltrane. The sessions for the LP were laid down at the legendary Van Gelder Studios, with 'Trane at the peak of his powers and his classi...view item »

John Coltrane
My Favorite Things

I resisted this album for a long time. I thought it was just another Coltrane that I could get on a best of album. Wrong! oh so wrong. This is quintessential early Coltrane. I love the interpretations that Coltrane gives on this recording. He is such a master and this album showcases his skill, and beyond that, the soul that is an integral part ...view item »

John Coltrane & Don Cherry
The Avant-Garde (Mono)

A clear vinyl re-release of one of John Coltrane’s more disputed works, this album from him and Don Cherry has the pair playing Ornette Coleman tracks with some of the Ornette Coleman Quartet. One of the few Coltrane recordings sans piano which gives the saxophonist room to manoeuver. One for the ...view item »

John Coltrane
Giant Steps (Mono)

One of the best, and especially great for those looking to delve deeper into the genre. You'll be bopping and tapping like a lunatic to this one. Phenomenal line-up as well, fyi....view item »

John Coltrane

Thelonious Monk Quartet & John Coltrane
At Carnegie Hall

John Coltrane
Blue Train

Blue Train by John Coltrane was recorded in 1957. Blue Train follows the jazz sub-genre of Hard Bop.

John Coltrane
Coltrane Plays The Blues (Mono)

John Coltrane captured in a bluesy mood on this old Atlantic Records release. Rhino are generously reissuing Coltrane Plays The Blues 50 years after it came out, and you’ll be glad they did.

John Coltrane

John Coltrane / Alice Coltrane
Cosmic Music

John Coltrane
My Favourite Things

On My Favourite Things, John Coltrane chose to break away from the timeless hard bop of his earlier works and opted to create a jazz masterpiece. This record including only cover versions of pop standards and showtunes, but don't let this put you off, because Coltrane uses this as a starting point for his explorations into modal soundscapes. The...view item »

John Coltrane
The Roulette Sides

Supremely good tenorist John Coltrane was pretty famous, wasn't he? Here are his recordings for Roulette, collected onto an RSD 10", which you shouldn't hold against him because he really is very good in any of his stylistic divergences (cool, hard pop, spiritual and free, they were all pretty great). Go forth!...view item »

John Coltrane
A Love Supreme: The Complete Masters

What to say about John Coltrane’s A Love Supreme? It has become one of the most famed albums in all of jazz for a reason: the sheer spiritual power of Coltrane and his quartet just can’t be beat. This Complete Masters release delivers the entire recording session, outtakes, chatter,...view item »

John Coltrane
Blue Paris

John Coltrane's quest to use up all melody ever continued on 'Blue Paris', a live record that depicts his work with the often avant-garde and free-form Eric Dolphy (famous for his jazz masterpiece 'Out To Lunch'). Their work together ranged a variety of fusion sounds; as Coltrane worked through Indian music and classical, Dolphy was also interes...view item »

John Coltrane
Afro Blue Impressions

'Afro Blue Impressions' is a live recording of John Coltrane, originally captured in 1963, but only released by Pablo in 1977. Coltrane's performance here is one of physical boundary-pushing with his soprano sax, moving his hands ferociously around the instrument and trying to elicit near-impossible sounds from it. On this performance, he's...view item »

John Coltrane
Standard Coltrane

'Standard Coltrane' was assembled from the unissued recordings of a single session with legendary engineer Rudy Van Gelder (Blue Note Records) at his studio in 1958.

John Coltrane

I can't stress just how wonderful this piece is. The piano is right on, the drums are groovy, the bass is off the hook, and Coltrane is...well the best. John Coltrane completely blew me away with this record, the first that I have ever owned of his. I hope that people aren't going to just see this and dismiss it. Ballads is truly a one-of-a-kind...view item »

John Coltrane
Jazz Way Out

Despite a fairly close association with the legendary tenor saxophonist John Coltrane, trumpeter-flugelhornist Wilbur Harden is not very well known or ranked among the best trumpet players of the 1950s. This Savoy CD, recorded in March and June, 1958,entitled Jazz Way Out, presents Coltrane in a sideman role on three compositions by Harden and o...view item »

John Coltrane

John Coltrane
A Love Supreme

This is, literally, John Coltrane’s staggeringly legendary A Love Supreme, and you shouldn’t really need to be told any more than that in order to pounce on it. Spiritual and energetic, melodic but hinting towards Coltrane’s later free explorations, this is deservedly a classic. T...view item »

John Coltrane

This is a classic album by John Coltrane. It's his first for the Impulse! record label; he would become readily associated with the label, recording all of his great mature albums for it. Due to Coltrane's prominence in the jazz world, Impulse! would also become an important jazz label during the 1960s and a major documenter of the avant garde. ...view item »

John Coltrane
Coltranes Sound

Consisting of "leftover" material from Coltrane's My Favourite Things sessions, you would never know by listening to this that this was originally considered bonus material. Coltrane was experimenting with a bunch of approaches around this time, making variety one of this album's strengths. The Atlantic recordings contain some of John Coltrane's be...view item »

John Coltrane
Coltrane Jazz

Recorded during the same sessions that spawned Giant Steps, Coltrane Jazz can be considered equal, although Giant Steps has the edge because it was how a lot of people got introduced to John Coltrane's fully developed sound. Even so, you find Coltrane trying out the split tones he uses later on in his career, such as on "Harmonique" and also the...view item »
