✨✧ John Coltrane-Wilbur HardenCountdown – The Savoy Sessions ... LP
Savoy, 1958. Used 2LP Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Fantastic work from a lost chapter of Coltrane's career! Sure, you may know his early work with Miles Davis, or his groundbreaking later recordings on Atlantic and Impulse – but in the late 50s, 'Trane recorded some fantastic sides with trumpeter Wilbur Harden for Savoy Records, and the material is unlike anything he ever did for other labels. In a way, the Harden tunes are similar to Yusef Lateef's work for the label – hardbop at the core, but with touches of exoticism and spiritualism that brings out whole new modes of playing from the musicians. Most tracks are long and modal, a perfect platform for Coltrane's new ideas of soloing that were beginning to take shape at the time. Harden's a much different horn player than Miles Davis ever was – with a fiercer approach to rhythm that kind of drives Coltrane along in a more souful groove than ever before. Tracks include "Snuffy", "EFFPH", "Count Down", and "Rhodomagnetics". LP, Vinyl record album

John ColtraneBahia ... LP
Prestige, Late 50s. Near Mint- ... $14.99
An album issued in the years after John Coltrane left the Prestige Records label – but a set that includes some very compelling sounds from the early years, really showing the tenorist in a strongly spiritual transition! Coltrane plays tenor throughout, and the record also features the Red Garland trio, with Red on piano, Paul Chambers on bass, and either Art Taylor or Jimmy Cobb on drums – but the set also features trumpet from the great Wilbur Harden on half the record – Coltrane's frequent partner over at Savoy Records, who comes into the music here with the sort of searching, open style that works so well with Trane's tenor! The music is partly in the Garland/Coltrane late 50s Prestige mode, but also has some of the deeper spiritual vibe of the Savoy years too – and titles include "I'm A Dreamer Aren't We All", "Something I Dreamed Last Night", "Bahia", and "Goldsboro Express".

John ColtraneBeliever ... CD
Prestige/OJC, Late 50s/1964. Used ... $7.99
A great title for this one – given how many believers found the path to John Coltrane in the 60s! The session's a bit earlier, though – a later release of material that Trane recorded during his first solo stretch as a leader at Prestige Records – with long, open lines that are given plenty of strong accompaniment by the Red Garland Trio! The tracks are all quite long – the title track takes up all of side one – and the record features either Donald Byrd or Freddie Hubbard on trumpet, both giving a bit of bite that's different than Coltrane's music with Miles Davis, and which almost echoes his work with Wilbur Harden. Titles include "The Believer", "Nakatini Serenade", and "Do I Love You Because You're Beautiful". CD

John ColtraneDial Africa (BYG pressing) ... LP
BYG (France), 1958. Very Good+ ... $9.99
French issue of some of Coltrane's groundbreaking recordings for Savoy from the late 50s – recorded in the company of a super-hip sextet with Wilbur Harden on trumpet, and done in a way so that the tracks open up nice and long, in strong modal grooves that point the way towards 'Trane's later work in the 60s. Three long tracks – "Gold Coast", "Dial Africa", and "Oomba". LP, Vinyl record album
(Non-gatefold pressing.)

✨✧ John ColtraneStandard Coltrane ... CD
Prestige/OJC, 1958. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The title may say "standard", but with Coltrane at the helm, the record is anything but! Sure, the tunes are all familiar ones, but the presentation here is a far cry from mainstream piano jazz of the 50s – as John's working in a group with the Red Garland trio for rhythm, as well as trumpeter Wilbur Harden, the slightly off-kilter player who made some great Savoy records with Coltrane. Tracks are all quite long, and really open up with a fair bit of invention – and even when Coltrane's straight ahead, he's still compellingly creative. Tracks include "Don't Take Your Love From Me", "I'll Get By", "Spring Is Here", and "Invitation". CD

✨✧ John ColtraneStardust Session ... CD
Prestige, 1958. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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/Coltrane 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".
