Product Description

Amazon.com

John Coltrane has always been best known for stretching the limits, creating titanic, extended improvisations filled with exploding, cascading flurries of notes, but he was also one of the most lyrical of musicians, capable of the most heartfelt and touching ballads. The material here is taken from his Impulse! recordings made between 1961 and 1963, drawing largely on Ballads, John Coltrane and Johnny Hartman, and Duke Ellington and John Coltrane, albums that showcased his sensitive side. Coltrane's silvery sound brought an utterly new dimension to tenor saxophone balladry, a metallic clarity in which each note is given its own luster and nuance. Listening to these ballads gathered together, Coltrane seems to touch on every mood of romance, from longing to rapture to reflection, imbuing each song with an ineffable grace. His theme statements are sublimely beautiful, while his improvisations add new depths with their unique mix of strength and delicacy. "In a Sentimental Mood," with Ellington's shimmering, bell-like piano figure and Elvin Jones's animated drums perfectly complementing Coltrane's tenor, is simply one of the most memorable ballad performances ever recorded, but it's surrounded here by other gems. "Soul Eyes" is wistful reverie, while "You Don't Know What Love Is" has touches of an unsettled, passionate incantation. The tracks with Johnny Hartman are a rare meeting between a singer and a musician who are profoundly attuned to one another, with Coltrane's flutelike fills on "My One and Only Love" or his solo on "They Say It's Wonderful" conversational expansions on the lyrics' sentiments. --Stuart Broomer

First let me state that I don't own this nor will I ever own this. This is just another example of Verve repackaging the same material over and over again. Anyone interested in this set should pick up one of the three albums most of these songs are taken from. Each of those sets has a special sound to it. Ballads is very gentle but extremely beautiful (the best of the three in my opinion) while the Ellington set has a nice swing to it. The Hartmann is very lush. Impulse, now a division of Verve (which is a division of Universal - which is a division of...) has had an excellent, more varied compilation called the Gentle Side of John Coltrane available for years.
This is a trend that all the big companies seem to follow. When Verve took over the impulse catalog, they dropped many current artist (those with a smaller market share) and started re-re-re-issuing the same stuff. Great music is still unreleased on CD and Miles, Coltrane, Armstrong and other proven sellers keep getting reissues with the same tracks jumbled up with titles that have little to do with the originial conception of the work. I'm waiting for some true theme CDs like "Bix for Drinking" or "Mingus for Angry Folks."
Hats off to Amazon for placing smaller independent label releases next to the big guys! There is music being made. Go find it!

So I just got on the jazz tip. Might as well start wit the best.
In a sentimental mood I remember from Love Jones fell in love waay back then. Shocked my dad that I even own a coltrane cd. Now I hide my Mingus and Miles collection from him. Now while this is the softer side of coltrane it wonderful for those just startin to listen to jazz. I think after the rain is my favorite but I dont know yet, probally never will. Worth every dollar.

Now this Coltrane CD is a true feast for the ears. Unlike Stellar Regions, Coltrane For Lovers is soothing and filled with several catchy songs. Coltrane's saxaphone is front and center, however the piano, bass, and drums interwine very nicely. Vocalist John Hartman contributes nicely on three tracks. Its a shame there is not more of his work on this release.
The tone is pretty constant on the eleven tracks. However that is probably the only drawback. Because this collection most certainly can set a romantic mood. Pick it up and play it for your special someone. You'll certainly charm his or her heart.

This is the first Coltrane recording that I've purchased, and I was moved to buy it because I love ballads. The CD opens with one of my favorite standards "My One and Only Love," and features a few other familiar tracks -- ie. "Too Young to Go Steady" and "In a Sentimental Mood" I first heard the latter on the "Love Jones" soundtrack and was enthralled. I know that "A Love Supreme," is considered Coltrane's seminal work, but I wanted to start off with some of his softer, romantic selections -- and what better way than with a compilation CD?
Because it features some vocals as well as instrumental pieces, I think that people who do not typically purchase Jazz may be drawn to this collection. It really is a lovely collection of work.

Yes, these songs can be found on other albums, but it is so nice to have them all grouped together on one cd. It is the perfect cd to relax with. Gorgeous songs and Coltrane's sultry romantic sax. There are also 3 vocal tracks with Johnny Hartman, which makes for a perfect combination. I think this is a good place to start for anyone not familiar with Coltrane, as this is a highly accessible album, one that anyone can enjoy. The booklet includes an interesting essay on Coltrane.

If you're looking for pure Coltrane this is not the CD for you. If you're new to Trane and want to know what all the fuss is about this is the wrong CD to start with, he's very ordinary here. This is the soft side of Coltrane, yet his horn personifies strength and virility in a romantic way. If you are looking to understand the totality of the artist and enjoy ballads than this CD is for you. Granted this music is available on other CD's but then what isn't? The editor and a reviewer explain all the details of availabilty elsewhere. The cuts featured here display one of the strengths of the man, the ability to be a frontman yet collaborate(Duke Ellington) and share the limelight usually afforded mostly to him. The ballads featured on this CD are magnificent pieces that display the sentimental side of Trane, softly blowing his magic through his horn, never dominating yet always captivating. On occasion there are glimses of the legendary improvisational side of Coltrane but for the most part it is a kinder, gentler, more subdued Trane that expresses one facet of his enormous talent. "In a Sentimantal Mood" is a beautiful track that best expresses what I am trying to say. The lingering keys by Duke Eliington resonate and interpaly in complete harmony with Trane, creating a dreamy sequence befitting of the title. Another strong yet gentle track is "My Little Brown Book" which tantalizes the ears in similar manner. If you like soft sexy ballads, music for the afterglow, this is the one to listen to. Perfect music for those special moments that linger beyond the music. Enjoy this CD now, cherish the special moments always.
