Editorial Reviews

This 1958 album unquestionably "set the pace" for Coltrane's profound improvisations.

Format:Audio CD
The Settin' the Pace album is often the subject of controversy. Clearly this one has flown under the radar, but perhaps only when compared to Coltrane's other amazing works and his prolific catalog.

Now I own this record in at least 4 different formats. That's right, 4. I own the original vinyl, the first CD issue, the Fearless Leader Box Set and now this remastered re-release. These new versions are the only remasters available at this time. So until they issue a new box set of the remastered versions, you have to look to these original disks if you want to hear these albums remastered.

Yes it's true, the original recording sounds very good. Yes it's also true that the "Fearless Leader" box set includes all this material, along with many more Prestige albums. So why purchase the re-mastered Rudy Van Gelder edition? Well, if you are one of those (like me) who simply has to own every Coltrane album and for that matter every Rudy Van Gelder recording, it will be hard to say no. Similarly, if you are of the ilk that believes that anything before 1979 should be re-mastered, you may find this version to be your first satisfactory purchase of this album.

The recording quality is very good, especially considering the time period. Then again, that's typical Rudy Van Gelder. There are some subtle nuances during which the volume fluctuates greatly between the brass sections and the piano sections. But the sound is still crisp and vibrantly clear.

This group of musicians is essentially the Red Garland trio + Coltrane. This includes Paul Chambers on bass and Art Taylor on percussion.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Sleeper February 9, 2014

Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Having collected most of Coltrane's albums over the years for some reason this one was off the radar. I've been listening to it on and off for a couple weeks and like it more each day.Parts of it remind me of some of what's on Giant Steps, my favorite Coltrane album.Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars BEAUTIFUL EARLY COLTRANE September 25, 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is an excellent Cd, with Coltrane in his embryonic creative stage, still developing what Cannonball Adderley would later call :"HIS SHEETS OF SOUND."
