Coltrane does not do the old Eexter Gordon/Leo Parker duet number, "Settin' The Pace," in this set. The overall title merely refers to his preeminence in the jazz world at the time the recording was released in the early Sixties. Recorded in 1953, this session comes from a time when Trance had already played in the Miles Davis Quintet and the Thelonious Monk Quartet, and was frequenting Rudy Van Gelder's New Jersey studio in recording situations backed the the Red Garland Trio. This threesome - Garland, Paul Chambers, and Arthur Taylor-was a Prestige entity on its own, but had already released such albums with Coltrane as Traneing In and Soultrane. Settin' The Pace, with its heady combination of seldom-done pop material and Jackie McLean's intriguing "Little Melonae," continued the excellent quartet series at a time when Trane was making jazz history at the head of yet another powerful foursome.
