Editorial Reviews

Pianist and arranger Tadd Dameron contributed all six compositions to this 1956 date, and his presence clearly inspired Coltrane, particularly on numbers like Soultrane and On a Misty Night .

Happily, I stumbled across this album by accident the other day. The compositions of Tadd Dameron are quite soulful, the perfect vehicle for the expressive tenor of John Coltrane. Joined here by Miles Davis Quintet member Philly Joe Jones and John Simmons on bass, Coltrane and Dameron make for a dynamic duo. Dameron's piano playing is quite beautiful and I really enjoy the way Coltrane sounds here. This album was recorded just months after the famous Quintet sessions (Workin', Steamin', Cookin', and Relaxin'), finding Trane in fine form. He's not quite yet the powerhouse he would become, but his tone is still full and expressive. The liner notes seem to feel that another horn would have improved this session, but I disagree. Coltrane's big sound fills the space more than adequately and leaves plenty of room for Dameron to shine as well. I had never heard of Mr. Dameron prior to discovering this recording, but both his playing and composing will compel me to seek out other recordings. Each track is unique and interesting. My personal favorite is "On a Misty Night", which was worth the purchase price of the album alone. This album is worth checking out, not only for fans of Coltrane, but for all jazz fans. This album is a true find. Highly recommended.

$5.00 vs. $7.74 (iTunes) or $9.99 (Google)? What's there NOT to like? This is a great album & highly recommended for any & all 'Trane listeners. Tadd Dameron is an added bonus. Buy this before the price goes back up!!!

I've been on a Tad Dameron kick lately and among all of his recorded albums as a leader this one stands out. First, the line-up is so perfectly matched to the music that one wonders if there had been any changes would the music even come close to what was recorded that November day. Of course, the fact that the entire album was laid down in a single session is another remarkable feature by today's standards. Back them it was common for jazz musicians to walk in and leave the same day with a complete album, often to be released the same year.

But I digress. Listen to the sound samples on this page. One thing that leaps out is Coltrane is given all of the space he needs or wants, and there are some iconic tracks. My favorite is Soultrane, but that reflects my personal taste. Another thing is all of the tracks are Dameron compositions, which makes it valuable to musicians who want to dissect his approach to not only composing, but arranging. Both are exemplified on every track.

Finally, it's the music itself. Coltrane's tenor sax may be given a lot of space, but the backing musicians seem to be mentally connected to one another in a way that shows they are familiar with each other. Indeed, drummer Philly Joe Jones was so inspired by Dameron that he formed a tribute group later in his own career. On this album Jones' drumming is a study in brushwork on many of the tracks, and a study in taste on all of them. In my opinion bassist John Simmons also significantly contributed. His approach is straightforward on each track, and provides the perfect pulse on all of them to move the music without adorning it with unnecessary notes.

This was recorded for Prestige at Rudy van Gelder's Hackensack, NJ studio on November 30, 1956. To be honest, I have not met a mid 1950s Prestige album by anyone that I didn't like, but this one stands out for the reasons I've outlined above.
