John Coltrane and Johnny Hartman - John Coltrane and Johnny Hartman Hybrid Stereo & Mono SACD
John Coltrane and Johnny Hartman John Coltrane and Johnny Hartman Hybrid Stereo & Mono SACD
John Coltrane and Johnny Hartman is one of the three all-ballad albums that John Coltrane recorded in late 1962 and early 1963. Johnny Hartman was apparently Coltrane's suggestion, and his deep, dark voice meshes perfectly with Coltrane's tenor.
The material is well-chosen, including definitive readings of "My One and Only Love" and "Lush Life". McCoy Tyner fills out the chords, augmenting the harmonies and keeping the tone of these ballads respectful but not overly sentimental. All the players get to the deep structure of the songs and are not afraid to play in the most essential and elegant manner. This is beautiful jazz.
This timeless classic features the original mono mix for the first time on CD, in addition to the previously available stereo mix!
Remastered by the legendary original engineer Rudy Van Gelder, both versions sound better than ever on this highly anticipated hybrid Super Audio CD.
