Editorial Reviews

An impeccable example of Coltrane's early playing, he leads a trio on the first three tracks, and brings in pianist Red Garland for the final two.

I noticed this Coltrane Album was not reviewed. Coltrane infuses the title track, Lush Life with sweet tender beauty. Both raw and refined, it is a masterful outpouring of love that meshes soul and sound into a moment of artistic genesis. The rest of the album is great as well. I think it's one of Coltrane's best, though of course, there are many beautiful Coltrane albums. but this one is unusually gripping for it's sweet intensity. In film they call such an overlooked gem, a Sleeper.

All of Coltrane's Prestige catalog, while not so much influenced by the Eastern sounds that would later envelop his music, is wonderful. You get to hear Trane in a more traditional setting somewhere between his work with Miles (in fact he was still with Miles when this stuff was recorded) and his first steps (ha pun not intended) away from more traditional tunes on the Atlantic label. Now, there are 11 CDs that make up this catalog (Trane as a leader on Prestige). You do the math. If you buy 'em separately you are going to pay around $125.00. You can get the Fearless Leader box set right here on Amazon for half that price PLUS you get a great guide to all the music Trane recorded as a leader for Prestige, a complete "session-ography", nice picks of all the CD covers including some of those that went through some changes over the year, 45 rpm single covers and so on. It's a very nice package. Buy this if you must but I recommend you save your pennies for a few weeks until you can afford to buy Fearless Leader.

Without denying Trane's greatness and importance, I have to confess that not a single one of his albums as a leader is among my favourite recordings. I mean, there's great Coltrane moments scattered around on albums under Miles' leadership, or Red Garland's, and many of Trane's albums have individual tracks I adore, e.g., the title cut on the album Ole. But none of his albums adds up. Take Lush Life, for instance (which, admittedly, was a sort of Prestige Records odds-and-sods of leftovers, cobbled together to capitalise on Trane's "My Favourite Things" fame on Atlantic Records). This album comes as close to being my favourite among Trane's pre-Atlantic work, but each of its tracks almost serves as an answer to all of Trane's critics. You've got an almost unrecognisable cover of Cole Porter's "I Love You," which is utterly magisterial and unsentimental but also lacking in all of the traditional jazz virtues, like swing or melody. But then the album's closer, "I Hear a Rhapsody" swings like mad. Or, you've got "Like Someone In Love", which couldn't be more unlike Sonny Rollins' pianoless trio recordings, as Trane is clearly uninterested in the tune and very much interested in exploring the harmonics of it. But then you have this justifiably famous version of "Lush Life" on which all of the soloists (Trane, Garland, a particulary fine Donald Byrd) are VERY MUCH aware of the intricate melody all the way through, to stunning and fascinating effect. Ironically, the greatest cut on the album Lush Life may actually be "Trane's Slo Blues," where you can almost feel everyone easing up and releasing the tension on familiar blues turf. (It's the only place on the album that Coltrane doesn't seem to be playing through clenched teeth.Read more ›

This is an early offering by Coltrane. He plays with a variety of sidemen (no piano on "Someone in Love" for example), and doesn't yet play "sheets of sound", but this album is definately 'Trane.

He's a little more lyrical here, not in as much a hurry. He also plays some standards, such as "I Love You", rather than all originals.

The highlight of the album is the title track. In fact, this may be the defining recording of Lush Life. Unlike the other tracks, 'Trane has a foil in Donald Byrd on trumpet, and the two play beautifully together. It's also an opportunity for some extended improvisation, as the track is over 10 minutes long.

This is a great Coltrane album to start with if you are new to the music.

2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Mike Tarrani HALL OF FAMETOP 10 REVIEWER on April 19, 2014
Format: Audio CD
I love this album for the same reason why I am drawn to Sonny Rollins: three of the five tracks are pianoless. Don't get me wrong, piano is one of my favorite instruments (I earn my living performing with piano-centric ensembles and most of the music to which I listen is led by pianists.) But a tenor sax backed by just a bass and drums shifts the entire focus to that instrument. In that respect Coltrane shines without any buffer between him and the listener.

Instead of reading my babbling give the sound samples on this page a listen. On the first three tracks there is enough music from the samples to convey that I mean by a pianoless trio. The remaining two tracks will showcase Coltrane in larger ensembles and you can clearly hear why I prefer the more minimalist arrangements. Of course, that is a personal preference on my part and your experience may be different. The bottom line is although this was released in 1961 it is still Trane from his Prestige period circa 1957 to early 1958.

Do not let my reference to Rollins send you on a tangent. Rollins was experimenting with the pianoless trio concept when this album was recorded, but the absence of piano on this album's first three tracks is due to Red Garland missing the August 16, 1957 recording session when those tracks were made and not by design.

For the record, the other tracks were recorded on May 31, 1957 (I Hear A Rhapsody) and January 10, 1958 (Lush Life). All of the sessions were at Rudy van Gelder's Hackensack, NJ studio and feature the following personnel: May, Coltrane is backed by Red Garland on piano, Paul Chambers on bass and Louis Hayes on drums.
