Introducing John Coltrane

John Coltrane

06 March 2006

While Coltrane first gained attention for his revolutionary 'sheets of sound' technique, it was the deep spirituality of his music that really made his solo records such classics.  His Atlantic recordings from 1959 and 1960 really represent the heart of the Coltrane legacy, with gems like 'My Favorite Things', 'Central Park West' and 'Mr P.C.', and performances by great musicians like vibraphonist Milt Jackson, pianist McCoy Tyner, and drummer Elvin Jones.
