"John Coltrane, Blue Train - 200 Gram"

JOHN COLTRANE - BLUE TRAIN - This 45 RPM 12" Four LP Set was mastered from the Original Session Tapes to 200 Gram Heavy Virgin Vinyl and is one of the Rarest Limited Edition Audiophile LPs in existence (only 1000 pressed). Each set has 4 LPs at 45 Speed, 200 Gram Vinyl on a 12" LP. The tenor sax giant had signed with another label when he embarked on this one-off date for Blue Note, an excursion that paid off with an enduring modern jazz masterpiece. Boasting volley after volley of smart soloing and intuitively swinging rhythm work, BLUE TRAIN is a joy, from the coolly precise ensemble entry on the opening title piece through the sets balance of elegant hard bop conversations and smooth downshifts into ballads. John Coltrane wrote four originals, all of them now regarded as standards, and assembled a rhythm section including pianist Kenny Drew, Miles Davis rhythm section of bassist Paul Chambers and drummer Philly Joe Jones, and trumpeter Lee Morgan and trombonist Curtis Fuller. Coltrane's signature sound, now fully developed but still hewing more to familiar blues and chromatic harmonies than his later modalities, is confident and expansive, and his partners respond vividly throughout. Tracks include: Blue Train > Moments Notice > Locomotion > I'm Old Fashioned > Lazy Bird.
