Editorial Reviews

Volume One takes us back to '61-'62 with remastered editions of Trane's original albums: Africa/Brass, Live at the Village Vanguard, Coltrane, Duke Ellington & John Coltrane , and Ballads . Quite the output considering these albums were all recorded within a 16-month period! Seminal jazz!

Format: Audio CD
IMHO John Coltrane is one of the very best jazz musicians ever. If this box set does not deserve a five star rating, no Jazz record does. I am truly amazed that there is currently only one reviewer for this box set.
This volume one contains five CD, with the same content and the same cover as the original vinyl album. This box contains the most accessible part of what Coltrane recorded with Impulse.

Impulse did a terrific re mastering job. Before purchasing these boxes, I was under the false idea that Coltrane Impulse albums where recorded under bad conditions and that the sound was irremediably damaged. Many avant grade Jazz records of the 60's have indeed a dreadful sound.

I changed my mind after purchasing Coltrane box sets. The sound is much better than with the LP I own. In particular, the engineer has done a fantastic job for the drums. Elvin Jones is amazing. Most drummers should sell their drum set and change instrument after listening to Elvin Jones with Coltrane. Sometimes Elvin Jones is stealing the show.

Don't get me wrong; this is not ECM technical quality. But this is enough to enjoy my favorite Saxophone player at the apex of his short carrier

I love early Trane on Impulse, This is wonderful stuff. I don't have any negative words for this box. I would recommend it to anyone curious or already a fan. Get this one for sure. Also great is "Fearless Leader" on Presige. Enjoy!

This Volume 1 of Mr. Coltrane's work on Impulse is a must have. Nothing is left out. The sound is awesome.
