The year 1965 was one of the turning points in the career of John Coltrane. The great saxophonist, whose playing was always very explorative and searching, crossed the line into atonality during that year, playing very free improvisations (after stating quick throwaway themes) that were full of passion and fury. This particular studio album has two standards (a stirring "Chim Chim Cheree" and "Nature Boy") along with two recent Coltrane originals ("Brazilia" and "Song of Praise"). Art Davis plays the second bass on "Nature Boy" but otherwise this set (a perfect introduction for listeners to Coltrane's last period) features the classic Quartet comprised of the leader, pianist McCoy Tyner, bassist Jimmy Garrison and drummer Elvin Jones.

While not my favorite Trane recording it is unique in that he was transitioning to avant-garde in 65 and this album showcases that.

Most of his stuff after this is not my cup of tea as I am not fond of Avant-garde, but I do appreciate the talent and sonics especially the clarity of the sax. Must have for Trane fans

Great Version

This is just a great release of this wonderful music. The thing I like best is the tone of the sax, especially the soprano. Some offerings on lp in the past make Coltrane's tone like a razor, this one has richness and depth, making it easy to listen to. Its all good on this album, and record surfaces are nice and quiet. Highly recommended for Coltrane fans.
