My Favorite Trane - into The Sun
T. Davis | 10/28/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This album requires a little patience. It seems to unfold after several listens: releasing layer after beautiful layer. If you can't get enough of A Love Supreme - don't hesitate to try Transition. It is a fantastic album!"
One of his best

"There was tons and tons of music by Coltrane left in the Impulse vaults after Trane died in 1967. It was never that this stuff was sub-par, it was just that he was recording so much in 1965 and 66 that the label could not keep up with him. Don't forget that this was live in the studio and you didn't have to mix it. A few takes per number, in a day, and you had a new album.

Transition catches Coltrane in spring, 1965, when his music was growing by leaps and bounds and changing each month. Here, he was still using modes in a coventional way, but his solos were getting more and more out there.

The title track is a D minor jam, and features some of his, and Tyner's, most compeling playing. Dear Lord is a great ballad.

Track three is a suite that fetures different takes on advanced blues variations. At times, it swings like a Mingus blues creature. It is amazingly moving, going from hard riffing to softer, more contemplative sections, and the sum total is excellent.

In a few months, Trane would be much further out there, stretching modes, his music, and himself to the breaking point. It is hard to beleive that this little time passed and his music changed so drastically.

But if you ever tire of My Favorate Things, Love Supreme or Impressions but Ascention and Om are too potant for you, Transition is an album well worth checking out. It is probably the last time he recorded a full album before diving head long into the avant gaurde."
An undiscovered classic!!

"This CD version is better than the original LP because of its inclusion of Welcome. This is the best post-Love Supreme Coltrane, and one of the best avant garde jazz albums of all time. If you like Coltrane, you must own this. I would rank it as my second favorite Trane album right behind Love Supreme. Very beautiful and very moving."
