Settin The Pace

LP (Item 72442) Prestige, 1958 — Condition: Very Good+
Temporarily Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album

✈
❔

4 long tracks with plenty of room to roam around – a perfect setting for a young John Coltrane to demonstrate his distinctly different approach to the tenor sax! The album's one of Trane's key classics for Prestige – a quartet side that features backing by the trio of Red Garland on piano, Paul Chambers on bass, and Art Taylor on drums – very open, and uniquely creative – especially in some of the more surprising moments! Titles include a great version of Jackie McLean's "Little Melonae", plus "Rise N Shine", "If There Is Someone Lovelier Than You", and "I See Your Face Before Me".  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Very Good + (plus)

  • Vinyl should be very clean, but can have less luster than near mint.
  • Should still shine under a light, but one or two marks may show up when tilted.
  • Can have a few small marks that may show up easily, but which do not affect play at all. Most marks of this quality will disappear when the record is tilted, and will not be felt with the back of a fingernail.
  • This is the kind of record that will play "near mint", but which will have some signs of use (although not major ones).
  • May have slight 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.

Atlantic, Late 50s/Early 60s. Very Good+

John Coltrane

Stardust
Prestige, 1958. Very Good+
A mellow soulful classic by John Coltrane – and one of his best-remembered early albums for Prestige!

John Coltrane

Love Supreme
Impulse, 1964. Very Good- Gatefold

Sun Ship
Impulse, 1965. Very Good Gatefold
Soaring work from the legendary John Coltrane Quartet – a session that was incredibly far-reaching for the time, and which originally was unissued until after the time of Coltrane's death!

Selflessness
Impulse, 1963/1965. Very Good Gatefold

Coltrane Time
United Artists, 1958. Very Good+
This is a repackaged version of an album that was originally issued under Cecil Taylor's name, under the title Hard Drive (and later Stereo Drive, or something like that).

Impulse, 1960s. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold
Truly the best of the best of Coltrane's years at Impulse – as the collection has a strong focus on the longer, more spiritual numbers that he was free to develop while working for the forward-thinking company. The set's stuffed with great numbers – and includes classics like "Afri ... LP, Vinyl record album

Two Trumpets
Prestige, 1956. Sealed
Two trumpets, and plenty of soul – one of those wonderful late 50s Prestige Records blowing sessions that really let individual players have lots of the right sort of space to find their own voice alongside each other! Byrd and Farmer are both young here, and mighty sharp in their sounds ... LP, Vinyl record album
Prestige/New Jazz, 1958. Sealed
Steve Lacy in one of his greatest modes – working here in a style influenced heavily by Thelonious Monk – one that not only made Lacy one of the first interpreters of Monk's music on saxophone, but also gave his modernist impulses a great sense of focus over the years! The album's an ... LP, Vinyl record album
