John Coltrane - Blue Train [Limited Blue Audiophile Vinyl LP]
Regular price $26.00
High quality 180 gram pressing on limited blue colored vinyl. Coltranes only official Blue Note release, and many say his best all around album. Although I prefer Love Supreme in it's soulful experimentation and breaking of standard jazz ideals, Blue Train and Giant Steps are my favorite Trane albums within the standard Jazz boundary (it's an easy call for the newbie and advanced listener). The intro to the first self titled track is an all-time classic entrance. Then Trane busts the curtains playing faster than the speed of our thought. Many say this is also some of the best work of trumpeter Lee Morgan, bassist Paul Chambers, and drummer "Philly" Joe Jones as Trane shares the spotlight on all of the tracks equally. Many call it essential, but we'll settle for damn good.
