4.0 excellentRoundOnEndHiInMiddle | March 10th 16

John Coltrane was at an impasse after The Miles Davis Quartet broke apart, due in no small part to his crippling heroin addiction. He was instrumental in creating some wonderful jazz records, not only with Davis, but with Thelonius Monk as well. Thus, he decided to go on as a leader, releasing his debut on Atlantic records. It was, in retrospect, an excellent choice, as Coltrane features some truly mesmerizing and encompassing hard bop, not unlike the works he helped accomplished on 'Round About Midnight. "Bakai" is lively and seriously catchy, while the mellow "Violets For Your Furs" is rich with subtleties. Mostly, though, it's just Coltrane playing the sax in a fluid and flowing way, occasionally doing wild, unmatchable solos, almost as if in celebration of his newfound leader status. Overall, a very swell hard bop record, and debut, from one of jazz's greatest men.
