"... the first great segment of the master's career ... great music from an underrated and lesser-known period in Coltrane's musical evolution ... contains some tantalizing hints of what was to come: Straight Street and Chronic Blues ... his playing is superlative throughout."
- All About Jazz

"Four Stars ... an excellent record with Coltrane’s instantly recognizable horn sound front and centre (and yes I realize this is a monaural record). The band is filled with star performers as well, all in their prime ... the late ‘50s sound is present in spades ... the music should never be relegated to background listening; clearly, from the first note the recording expects the listener to be active and engaged ... I could go on and on about the music, but the fact is ... it’s all fantastic ..."
- Audiophile Audition

John Coltrane's 1957 debut album is the first of two in his catalogue simply entitled Coltrane (the other was released in 1962). The bandleader is joined on the front line by trumpeter Johnnie Splawn and Sahib Shihab on baritone sax, backed by pianists Red Garland and Mal Waldron, bassist Paul Chambers and drummer Albert "Tootie" Heath. Coltrane contributed two original songs to the setlist that includes three standards and a cover by Coltrane's friend Calvin Massey.

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
