An excellent double-length album that brings together a full session of material by John Coltrane
– titles that were initially scattered over a number of different albums, but finally brought back together for this package! The album features Coltrane
blowing in a quintet with trumpeter Wilbur Harden
– making the set a nice counterpart to the Harden
work at Savoy – but done here in a style that's more fully spacious, in keeping with Trane's Prestige work as a leader. Rhythm is by the trio of Red Garland on piano, Paul Chambers on bass, and Jimmy Cobb on drums – and tracks were originally issued on the albums Stardust, Standard Coltrane
, and Bahia. 8 titles in all – including "I'll Get By", "Don't Take Your Love From Me", "Stardust", "Invitation", "Love Thy Neighbor", and "My Ideal".
