One of THE great jazz quartets of all time: Coltrane (tenor & soprano), McCoy Tyner (piano), the earth-shaking Elvin Jones (drums) and Steve Davis (bass, though 'Trane's band would most often feature Jimmy Garrison and sometimes Reggie Workman), playing a blues-inspired program of originals. This band had an empathy shared by only the best bands in jazz: the Brubeck and Miles Davis groups, the Modern Jazz Quartet--and it shows here, with warmth, confidence, economy and relaxed interplay. Coltrane is clearly centre-stage here, his distinctive tone--and soon to become one of the most influential in jazz & beyond, as this was recorded in 1960--weaving through a set a of earthy yet thoughtful blues-based original compositions. The "wail" of early '60s Coltrane was in its embryonic stage here, but his playing is potent and soulful (without wearing his heart on his sleeve). A great place to begin with for The Man's post-bop/post-'50s music for the curious; fans will want it for the previously unreleased "Untitled Original".
