5.0 out of 5 stars Modal Jazz, Ballads and Hard Bop, April 1, 2004
This review is from: Coltrane's Sound (Audio CD)
This recording was released in 1960 and that was a major year for John. He released "My Favorite Things" the same year, where he introduced modal improvisation, exotic scales and extended jams. That was his first major avant-garde jazz record, but the journey starts on Coltrane's Sound. Before Coltrane's Sound, John had established himself as the greatest hard bop tenor saxophonist in the world (along with Sonny Rollins), but at some point he got interested in more sophistication and experimentation. Coltrane's Sound is the perfect mix of ballads, hard bop and modal jazz. His 'free jazz' approach had yet to be invented, but some of his runs and especially McCoy Tyner's chordal progressions hints that he is an mood for a change..

One detail: This album was NOT actually released in 1960. It was recorded 10/24/60, but not released until 4 years later, so as a result, it only became part of the Coltrane canon later. For Coltrane lovers and scholars this period includes masterpieces like Central Park West, 26-2, and Satellite, etc. so it's HUGE.

Yes, this release is HUGE. As you've stated, it was recording on 10/24/60 and that was the Quartet's first recording date. I recommend reading the Lewis Porter book. Many pages are dedicated to analysis of the music from Coltrane's Sound.
