'Trane handles these tunes masterfully,
This review is from: Ballads (Audio CD)
As someone else stated, this is 100% proof that 'Trane has the complete package.. much to the contrary of his earlier critics. He approaches these songs with sheer genius lyricism, while keeping his ideas clearly stated and succint. While I am not a big ballad fan in general, I rank this album right along with his greatest works. His playing is not overly sentimental, as he still maintains his sharp edges, allowing for the music to hit you real deep. Tyner plays right into the game plan as usual, as does the rest of the band. Another great work from the maestro!
