One gets to hear the thriving mastery as it was originally released. Top billing came with Coltrane inand next was Blue Train for Blue Note, which many consider to be his first great album.
As his tenure with the saxophonist developed Tyner could occasionally connect like he was gliding in modal autopilot, but his extended solo in the side-long title track here is amongst his very best. Furthermore, Coltrane provides Naima - John Coltrane - The Atlantic Years and subtlety on the soprano, an axe that like the clarinet defeats many players as they devolve into goose-like bluster. Tightening to a quartet, Steve Davis is the bassist with Tyner and Elvin rounding out the band as Trane plays tenor on four tracks and soprano for two.
Plus, these selections form a highly cohesive statement, unsurprisingly more so than does the closeout compilation The Coltrane Legacy. Recorded in by not released until six years later, The Avant-Garde finds Coltrane co-billed with trumpeter Don Cherry for a fascinating delve into the titular style and more specifically the music of Ornette Coleman.
For anyone looking to add some prime Coltrane vinyl to their shelves, this release is an extremely smart investment that will pay inexhaustible rewards. Bags and Trane A. Coltrane Plays the Blues A.
