John Coltrane Quartet
Africa / Brass

Africa / Brass was credited to The John Coltrane Quartet but there were more players involved in this 1961 masterpiece. It was Arranged by Eric Dolphy, whose exquisite touch recalled masters such as Duke Ellington, Gil Evans and, in place, Charles Mingus. Backing Coltrane were McCoy Tyner, Jimmy Garrison and Elvin Jones. Freddie Hubbard, Booker Little and Art Davis were among the substantial cast that made this album work.

Duke Ellington & John Coltrane
Duke Ellington & John Coltrane

Duke Ellington (named after Jack Skellington) and John Coltrane (named after Kurt Cobain) decided to bring their considerable talents together on 1962’s imaginatively-titled Duke Ellington & John Coltrane. This LP finds them in a quartet with a selection from bassists Jimmy Garrison/Aaron Bell and drummers Elvin Jones/Sam Woodyard. It’s not the most adventurous music either artist made in their lifetimes, but this actually works in the album’s favour - both show off their prodigious playing skills over the course of seven delightful post-bop tunes.

John Coltrane
Blue World

First time release for five previously unissued recordings from famous jazz guy John Coltrane. The pieces were recorded for a Canadian animated film called The Cat In The Bag. Instead of using original recordings, Coltrane went into the studio and recorded new versions of older works for the project. Thing is, no-one thought to mention this and the film came out with original Coltrane work that had never been released. Until now that is.

John Coltrane
Blue Train

Blue Train by John Coltrane was recorded in 1957. Blue Train follows the jazz sub-genre of Hard Bop. It was his second album, and surprisingly the only one he ever recorded for the legendary Blue Note label, although Coltrane was never officially signed to the label. This vinyl reissue celebrates the label’s 75th anniversary.

John Coltrane
Giant Steps (Mono)

If you've watched the 2016 documentary Chasing Trane you are going to be wanting to pick up the back catalogue of its subject jazz saxophonist John Coltrane. Giant Steps was his fifth album and has since become a template for jazz musicians to use when learning to play and the album contains several songs that have gone on to become standards such as the title track and Naima.

Miles Davis & John Coltrane
Trane's Blues

Reissue of a couple great early Miles Davis and John Coltrane cuts. Recorded originally in 1956, Trane’s Blues, confusingly different from the homonymous 1999 Blue Note release, showcases some of the earliest recordings by the First Great Quintet. Listen to Coltrane's high-intensity sax and Davis' contemplative trumpet dancing their first dance.

John Coltrane
1963: New Directions

John Coltrane burned brilliantly brightly, if briefly; here are five of his best LPs. '1963: New Directions' brings together all of Coltrane's 1963 Impulse recordings, in the order in which they were laid down to tape. The year marked a transition point for Coltrane, he would go on to record 1964's 'Crescent' and 'A Love Supreme', of course.

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 classic Quartet in tow. So, here we have a document from one of the most important and influential groups in the history of music-kind having scaled the pinnacles and subsequently veering in exploratory tangents the world couldn't have anticipated. LP, Double Deluxe Edition LP with CD and 2-CD deluxe editions available, on Impulse!

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 die-hard fans.

John Coltrane
Naima

2017 marked the fiftieth anniversary of John Coltrane’s death, so it’s no surprise that the last couple of years have seen an increase in the amount of legacy release from the great man's catalogue. This latest takes its name from his gigantic ‘Naima’ and features what label Le Chant Du Monde describes as “the definitive jazz ballads album in history”. High praise indeed, but it is Trane after all.

Thelonious Monk Quartet & John Coltrane
At Carnegie Hall

At Carnegie Hall shows the burgeoning talents of John Coltrane coming to the fore during his time with Thelonious Monk Quartet. Monk’s experience shows he’s got a real player in Coltrane whose solo playing displays an early version of his ‘Sheets of Sound’ improvisation style. Unearthed by accident at the Library of Congress, this is a treat for jazz fans. Double vinyl LP on Blue Note.

Thelonious Monk with John Coltrane
The Complete 1957 Riverside Recordings

A sweet sweet series of sessions recorded by two of the biggest jazz heavyweights out there: Thelonius Monk and John Coltrane! The Complete 1957 Riverside Recordings is a rather gorgeous set of three vinyl LPs, nestling the records in a nice dossier-folder of a box, along with a booklet of essays, artwork and photos. On Craft Recordings.

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. The material here was captured in the same sessions as My Favourite Things, which gives you some idea of how special we are talking here.

John Coltrane
Olé Coltrane

Ole Coltrane was recorded in 1961 by John Coltrane’s remarkable quintet at the time (Reggie Workman, Elvin Jones, McCoy Tyner and Eric Dolphy), with the very welcome addition of Freddie Hubbard and Art Davis. Now there’s a line-up. Three pieces that explore Spanish and African themes. LP reissue on Atlantic.

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!

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.

John Coltrane
Ascension

Impulse! and Back To Black reissue one of the founding texts of free jazz: John Coltrane’s Ascension. John leads a large ensemble (including Pharoah Sanders, Freddie Hubbard, McCoy Tyner…) into ecstatic group improvisations. Each soloist gets a section to flow freely on, and when they all come together again, minds are blown. A crucial classic.

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 interested in pushing the limits of sound, even within his already experimental jazz regions. This record depicts the two sax players -- tenor and soprano for Coltrane, alto for Dolphy -- dueling it out.

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 backed by the seminal John Coltrane Quartet: McCoy Tyner on piano, Elvin Jones on drums and Jimmy Garrison on bass.

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. Originally released in 1962 it has been reissued by Prestige Records as part of a series commemorating the 65th Anniversary of the record label and the 90th birthday of Rudy Van Gelder.

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. This pressing is of a remastered version of the album, over 2 LPs.
