CD Reviews

Totally awesome product that defies printed analysis
William E. Adams | Midland, Texas USA | 08/12/2002
(5 out of 5 stars)

"We have in this item something so rare! A compilation disc in which each of the eight selections, from about as many vinyl LP's from the 50's, seems absolutely perfect. Coltrane may not have put this together, but people who really cared did. What a listening experience. My only quibble is that the title, "Trane's Blues" is a bit misleading. The stuff on here may be spun off from the format of the blues, but sad it ain't. Angry, it ain't. Boring it ain't. Mellow it ain't. If you know the famous jazz disc "Kind of Blue" by Miles Davis and Coltrane and others, you know that the music on that one is indeed, kind of blue and sweet and slow and great. This collection, however, is more driving, more swinging, happier, and sure to please. Here, Coltrane plays lead in some cuts, support in others, and plays with a nice variety of wonderful musicians. You have to hear this, and once you hear it, if you like jazz, you'll have to own it. The folks who put this one together can really take a bow."
Sweet, lyrical and saxy

"What a gem! John Coltrane was among the greatest composers and players; he was and shall remain the lyrical master of the saxophone (what an interesting instrument! Check out Steely Dan's "Deacon's Blues" for a twist and a tale of the agony of playing the darn thing!). This is a beautiful album - so sweet, so pure. Throw away those conceptions of cacophony - this is a must have CD for all jazz fans."
...already my favorite Coltrane collection

"Over 70 minutes of Coltrane from the late fifties, playing blues with many of the great players of the time. Had it a week and it's already my favorite Coltrane collection."
