Ballads

by John Coltrane

(1962) Impulse #GRD156

Personnel John Coltrane (t.s), McCoy Tyner (p) Jimmy Garrison (b) Elvin Jones (d)
Description This is one of the most beautiful albums I have heard. 'Trane is sublime, and McCoy Tyners' playing is faultless. Magnificently played melodies and solos, with fantatic chord voicings.

Excellent recording!!! This recording along with the "Ellington" recording and the recording he did with the male vocalist (name slips my mind....sorry), really shows a different side of his style. Then you have his avante-garde stuff.

This album is a must have. It is an astounding achievement. To play such beautiful lines that are so tasteful and musical, is a testament to Coltranes ability. For a player who is known for 'Giant steps', this is a very different side, but none the less impressive.
