Coltrane (Prestige)

LP (Item 42315) Prestige, 1957 — Condition: Good
Also available
John Coltrane — Coltrane (Prestige) ... LP 23.99
Classic early John Coltrane for Prestige – less a bold statement as a leader than a strong batch of blowing session-styled tracks that show how well Coltrane could hold his own with more established players! The groups on the set vary from track to track – and feature players that include Sahib Shihab, Mal Waldron, Red Garland, Paul Chambers, and Al Heath – plus underappreciated Philly trumpeter Johnnie Splawn. Trane's in great form here – even though the overall set's a bit less structured than some of his later albums – and his tone and solo approach are already stepping out from the rest of the pack with great vigor! Titles include "Bakai", "Time Was", "Straight Street", and "Chronic Blues".  © 1996-2024, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Yellow & black label NJ pressing, with RVG/AB etch, and deep groove. In the red cover with some surface wear & aging, spot of clear tape on the spine, and a few marker & ink stamp spots, tiny top seam split.)

Good

  • A record that you'd buy to play, cheap, but which you wouldn't buy for collecting.
  • Will have marks across all parts of the playing surface, and will most likely play with surface noise throughout. May have some other significant flaws, such as residue, or a track that skips.
  • In most cases, a poor quality copy of a very difficult to find record.

Additional Marks & Notes

If something is noteworthy, we try to note it in the comments — especially if it is an oddity that is the only wrong thing about the record. This might include, but isn't limited to, warped records, tracks that skip, cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.

Afro Blue Impressions
Pablo, Early 60s/1977. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold

Traneing In
Prestige, 1957. Very Good
A beautiful album that more than lives up to its evocative title – an early session from John Coltrane, filled with long tracks that slide along brilliantly! As with many other classic Prestige albums from Trane, backing is by the trio of Red Garland piano, Paul Chambers bass, and Art Taylor ... LP, Vinyl record album
Impulse, 1961. Very Good Gatefold
Sublimely spiritual work from the great John Coltrane – a live album, but one that's easily one of his most important contributions to music in the early 60s – and a set that we'd rank right up there with his best studio sides for Impulse or Atlantic Records at the time! The group here ... LP, Vinyl record album

John Coltrane

Ascension (Edition II)
Impulse, 1965. Near Mint- Gatefold
One of the freest, most exploratory albums ever recorded by John Coltrane – and a unique session done with an expanded group of some of the most important avant jazz players of his generation!

Lush Life
Prestige, 1957/1958. Very Good-
A beautiful little album from the young John Coltrane, and one that hides its strong sense of depth behind a familiar jazz standard used as a title!

John Coltrane

Coltrane Plays The Blues
Atlantic, 1960. Very Good-
Coltrane plays the blues, but in a way like nobody else – stepping off of the deeply soulful sound of his late Prestige years, and moving into even more open and exploratory space for Atlantic! The setting is bare bones and simple – and many of these numbers begin with the sort of ... LP, Vinyl record album

Arnett Cobb

Sizzlin'
Prestige, 1960. Very Good
Arnett Cobb's definitely sizzlin on this classic album for Prestige – a stripped-down quartet setting that features his bold tenor sax right up front in the mix, cutting deeply on a half dozen well-recorded tracks! The sound here is simple, soulful, and completely effective – very much ... LP, Vinyl record album

Sonny Stitt

So Doggone Good
Prestige, 1973. Near Mint-
A standout acoustic set from the great Sonny Stitt – recorded during an early 70s stretch when he was doing a fair bit of work with electric players! The format here is great – and even though the instrumentation hearkens back to the earlier years of Sonny's career, there's a sense of ... LP, Vinyl record album
