Duke Ellington and John Coltrane are, individually, two tremendously influential and vital figures in the world of jazz who could do no wrong as far as I'm concerned. But when you combine their talents on record, then you have a recording that's not only music, it's also a piece of history. Though it's a brisk ride at 35 minutes in length, this collaborative effort brings out the best of both worlds during these seven tracks. "In a Sentimental Mood" is a stroke of brilliance: Ellington's angelic piano touches are set to Coltrane's velvet-smooth sax during this gentle number. It's a classic for the ages that must be heard to be believed. The tempo picks up in "Take the Coltrane," which has both in solid harmony. Few tracks can top the ultrasuave swagger of "Stevie," and the slow number "My Little Brown Book" has smooth touches which are underscored by Coltrane's light sax and drums by Sam Woodyard. A mastery of style, technique, and substance, this album is one of those must-have items that'll make your collection all the more complete.
Duke Ellington. John Coltrane. Two visionaries. One album. Who can ask for anything more?

...and these two legends of their own time done amassed it all into this one 35-minute recording. A collaboration like this is, well, basically, the stuff dreams are made of. And this is the cool and calculated nightclub album that all the newly-open ears to jazz are looking for. When you take Duke Ellington, possibly the single most important figure in jazz history, give him a set list of his own classic standards, then have him handling all the piano parts and such, then place him alongside one of the most popular and rule-changing jazz ensembles of the day, the John Coltrane Quartet, headed by the inimitable Coltrane saxophone, as well as having Ellington's own bassist Aaron Bell and drummer Sam Woodyard sit in on the sessions. Ohhh, baby, you done mixed a drink that's gonna make everybody in the bar smile. These recordings are just purely respectful to the original compositions and masterfully-performed. When you hear John take on an old 1940s Ellington standard like 'In a Sentimental Mood', all them World War II veterans that were gettin' on in their years must've been proud of the young saxophonist. But, as most others have mentioned, absolutely nothing tops the interpretation of Billy Strayhorn's 'My Little Brown Book'. It will just absolutely move you to tears. It's cool, it's sophisticated, it'll make you sweat and the build-up and movement of the lines Coltrane plays go down perfectly. Even more perfectly when coupled with some cognac. This is just not something any jazz fan or Coltrane completist or Ellington historian, or whatever you are, should be without. I rank it among my Top 5 favorite jazz recordings, truth be told. So that right there should be enough to peak your curiosity.

One couldn't find two more different artists stylistically than Coltrane and Ellington, but that difference emerges as a positive on this great release. Ellington's spare, understated piano offers a satisfying contrast to Coltrane's torrential tenor and soprano.
In fact, if you expected Coltrane to put his technique under wraps for this session, you're in for a surprise. To the contrary, this recording finds the saxophonist at his powerful best on "Take the Coltrane," "The Feeling of Jazz," "Stevie," and "Big Nick." Ellington frequently comps early in Trane's solos, then lays out while Coltrane rips away over bass and drums.
The concentration of Trane's solo statements is also satisfying on this release. There are no extended improvisations, a la the Village Vanguard performances. The brevity is in no way a minus. Each solo seems a perfectly formed statement; the sound is contained in a smaller framework, but that containment increases its power.
As usual, a ballad offers some of Coltrane's finest moments. "In a Sentimental Mood" shows how closely he and Ellington were in touch during the session. Coltrane honors the song and its composer with an attentive reading that draws attention to the song's beauty rather than to his own technique.
If I've said more about Coltrane than about Ellington, it's not to slight Duke. Coltrane merely stands out more on the release. Ellington's lovely soloing and comping add to the richness of the performance, and his taste is on display throughout as he seems to know precisely when to step aside and give his partner more space.

Indeed, the package is really cheap, with liner notes ridiculously small,
but since previously I had this album only on audio-tape, this CD is...
what can say? BEAUTIFUL...

Although, if you're a hard-core, late-Coltrane fan, you might find it a bit too low-key, but if you like Coltrane's album with Johnny Hartman, this is something for you... Also, Ellington fans will like this Coltrenisation of their favorite composer/pianist/arranger/bandleader...

I definitively come from more Ellington based pool (- Duke is the composer of most of the songs; one is by Strayhorn, one is by Coltrane -) and I LOVE THIS...
Lyrical, subtle, meditative, beautifully conceived and executed, logical collaboration of great artists.
