John Coltrane


Recommended Posts

Blue train is a good one to start with.

That's a good one, but as far as early stuff try out My Favorite Things and Giant Steps as well. If you want to hear a good live album try Live at the Village Vanguard. Keep in mind though that you definitely do want to start with this earlier stuff, because his material gets progressively more challenging and perhaps difficult to listen to-particularly something like Stellar Regions.

hmm...i have about 60 albums of coltranes...but out of all of them i'd say "a love supreme" is my favorite followed by "my favorite things" - if you're in the mood to be challenged listen to ascensions - one of those pioneering free jazz albums that can really kick you in the gut if you're into that
