"John Coltrane, Crescent 180 Gram"

180 Gram Limited Edition Analog Virgin Vinyl. John Coltrane was and remains one of jazz's most lyrical players and CRESCENT originally released in 1964, displays that lyricism in its most lovely and passionate forms. The beautiful melodys are displayed most affectingly on "Wise One" and on "Lonnie's Lament." The title cut contains a tour-de-force solo that shows just how much drama a master player can achieve in the space of four or five minutes of improvisation. "Bessie's Blues" is an exciting straight-ahead attack, and the "Drum Thing" showcases Elvin Jones' great talent and connection with Coltrane's music. Seldom do albums achieve such coherency of form, and the credit for this goes not only to John Coltrane (who composed all the tunes), but to the rest of the great quartet. McCoy Tyner has a wonderful shimmering solo on "Wise One," and Jimmy Garrison contributes a fine bass statement on "Lonnie's Lament." Great choice for the listener who is interested in exploring Coltrane's career or for the jazz fan who is search of 40 minutes of unadulterated pleasure. Tracks include: . Crescent 2. Wise One 3. Bessie's Blues 4. Lonnie's Lament 5. The Drum Thing
