John Coltrane - Coltrane's Sound on Numbered Limited Edition 180g 45RPM 2LP
John Coltrane Coltrane's Sound on Numbered Limited Edition 180g 45RPM 2LP from ORG Music
Mastered from the Original Analog Tapes by Bernie Grundman / Pressed at Pallas Group in Germany
Albums don't come more vetted than this 1960 classic: Coltrane's Sound was produced during the same three-day 1960 sessions that yielded Plays The Blues and My Favorite Things. Needless to say, it stands among the saxophonist's best-ever recordings, to say nothing of its fabled reputation as being part of what is arguably the most fruitful Atlantic jazz sessions ever recorded.
Made concurrently with the standards program that comprises My Favorite Things and the blues set that informs Plays the Blues, Coltrane's Sound is true to its title. The album offered the leader a chance to jump off from the traditional fare he was interpreting, and leap he does, turning equal parts darker, more intense, and dramatic than he does on the other period sets.
Several songs here function as a vehicle for pianist McCoy Tyner, who, along with drummer Elvin Jones and bassist Steve Davis, form the legendary Coltrane quartet. Through and through, Coltrane's Sound finds the headliner pushing boundaries while maintaining a striking balance between harmony, melody, and accessible themes.
This classic recording finally receives the ORG Music audiophile treatment with this 180-gram double LP 45rpm reissue, mastered from the original analog tapes by Bernie Grundman and pressed at Pallas Group in Germany. Each copy of this limited edition release is numbered with a gold foil-stamp.
