John Coltrane

The Classic Quartet -- the Complete Impulse! Studio Recordings

The new extravagantly packaged Coltrane set captures the legend at the height of his powers during his “classic quartet” period. This is the music that established the Coltrane legend and marked his place in the jazz pantheon as one of the most influential artists ever. Backed by the brilliant pianist McCoy Tyner, bassist Jimmy Garrison, and drummer Elvin Jones, Coltrane created many of his most enduring and popular performances. The 8-CD Classic Quartet includes 66 tracks from 18 albums that have been stunningly digitally remastered and a well-written 100-page booklet with a plethora or rare photos and historical insights. If you like jazz at all, this collection is essential.

The process of deciding which Trane solos are the best of the best gave me a good reason to go back and listen to his catalog once again, as if an excuse is even needed. I hope you do the same.
