Art Of John Coltrane – The Atlantic Years

LP (Item 71003) Atlantic, 1950s/1960s — Condition: Near Mint-
2LP Gatefold

We constantly find ourselves going back and forth: do we dig the Atlantic Trane, the Impulse Trane, or the Prestige Trane sides more? They each represent significant periods in both his and jazz in general's development, and all are so burning in their own way. This nice compilation brings together some of his finest moments for Atlantic, bridging the gap between his straight ahead bop years and the outward exploratory later period, with expansive takes on standards that began to incorporate his forward looking harmonic sensibility. A dozen now-classic sides in all: "Syeeda's Flute Song", "Aisha", "Countdown", "Mr. Knight", "My Shining Hour", Blues To Bechet", "The Invisible", "My Favorite Things", "Giant Steps", "Central Park West", "Like Sonny" and "Body & Soul".  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Cover has an index label with clear tape on the spine.)

Near Mint - (minus)

  • Black vinyl that may show a slight amount of dust or dirt.
  • Should still be very shiny under a light, even with slight amount of dust on surface.
  • One or two small marks that would make an otherwise near perfect record slightly less so. These marks cannot be too deep, and should only be surface marks that won't affect play, but might detract from the looks.
  • May have some flaws and discoloration in the vinyl, but only those that would be intrinsic to the pressing. These should disappear when the record is tilted under the light, and will only show up when looking straight at the record. (Buddah and ABC pressings from the 70's are a good example of this.)
  • May have some slight marks from aging of the paper sleeve on the vinyl.
  • Possible minor surface noise when played.

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.

Impulse, 1962. Very Good+
A perennial favorite in the John Coltrane catalog – a beautiful set of standards, handled in a warm laidback style – but which still has some of the depth of soul that John Coltrane brought to his more experimental work on Impulse Records! The album's a classic introduction to the ... LP, Vinyl record album
Beppo (Sweden), 1961. Near Mint-
Most of the set features great 1961 recordings on tour – with a group that has Eric Dolphy on alto, flute, and bass clarinet – joining John Coltrane on tenor and soprano sax, McCoy Tyner on piano, Reggie Workman on bass, and Elvin Jones on drums – on titles that include "My ... LP, Vinyl record album
Impulse, 1963. Sealed 2LP Gatefold
A rare gem that's worth all the attention it's bound to get over the years – never-issued material from the legendary John Coltrane Quartet – an instrumental session recorded at Rudy Van Gelder's studio on the day before his famous record with singer Johnny Hartman – completely ...

John Coltrane

Bahia (2LP set)
Prestige, 1957/1958. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold
Not to be confused with the single LP Bahia, this 2LP set features tracks from that one – plus titles from Stardust, and the full album Cattin With Coltrane & Quinichette. The first LP features tracks with Trane blowing with the Red Garland Trio, plus one additional tune with the same ... LP, Vinyl record album
Atlantic, 1957. Very Good
The Modern Jazz Quartet with a very noteworthy addition – the great Sonny Rollins, whose work on this record really makes it a cut above the usual MJQ outing for Atlantic! As on the quartet's previous Music Inn album with Jimmy Giuffre, the addition of a reed player really inflects their ... LP, Vinyl record album
Atlantic, 1956. Very Good
Beautiful work from Jimmy Giuffre – and a key album in the development of his spare sound of the late 50s! The record features Jimmy on clarinet – as you'd guess by the title – but this is no hokey set of Benny Goodman or Buddy DeFranco-type tunes. Instead, Giuffre's using the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Billie & De De Pierce/Jim Robinson's New Orleans B

Jazz At Preservation Hall 2
Atlantic, 1963. Very Good
Some of the best-recorded work to ever come from the Preservation Hall scene in New Orleans – one of Atlantic Records' great 60s albums of material from the legendary venue! Side one features a small combo led by trombonist Jim Robinson – a group with a great gutbuckety groove, thanks ... LP, Vinyl record album
Atlantic, 1985. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold
A stretched out performance from Ahmad Jamal – recorded with stunning acoustic brilliance at the Montreal Jazz Festival in 1985, in a performance that alternates between long solo lines on the piano, and bolder passages with bass, drums, and percussion! There's a strength here that's easily ... LP, Vinyl record album

Modern Jazz Quartet

Best Of The Modern Jazz Quartet
Atlantic, Late 50s/1966. Near Mint-
Titles include "Fontessa", "Golden Striker", "Bag's Groove", "Django", "Sketch", and "Pyramid (Blues For Junior)". LP, Vinyl record album

Dave Brubeck

All The Things We Are
Atlantic, 1976. Near Mint-
One of the best Dave Brubeck albums from later years – and one of the hippest! The record is noteworthy for its pairing of Anthony Braxton and Lee Konitz – the former a rising star at the time, influenced strongly by the latter in his roots – showcased here in some rare moments ... LP, Vinyl record album
Atlantic, 1958. Good
David Newman's first album as a leader – recorded under the Ray Charles banner, and featuring Ray himself on piano! The set's a really surprising one – as it's much more jazz-based than we'd expect, given the Charles connection – and really steps out with some lively solo work ... LP, Vinyl record album
Atlantic, 1977. Very Good+
A sweet little disco set from Herbie Mann – recorded in collaboration with the Fire Island soul vocal trio! The group's got a sound that's kind of compelling – not as sweet or smooth as some of the other disco trios of the time, and with an approach that almost has the voices moving in ...
