"... a timeless recording that sounds as fresh today ... his execution, articulation, rhythm, phrasing and ideas were all one and his tone was crystallizing ... he was fusing together all of the elements of playing music and playing the saxophone." - Jazz.com "... has a noticeably looser, more felt vibe than the better known Blue Note session. Coltrane and Garland are especially compatible ... remains an especially strong session ... it's hard to improve upon the appeal of this exceptionally fine session, alight as it is with some of the tenor's most assured and accessible playing. Highly enjoyable." - All About Jazz "... a classic of the 20th century jazz canon and an essential point of reference in Coltrane’s own tumultuous career ... the album on which Coltrane first emerged as the primary innovator of the jazz world, wielding an astonishing technical virtuosity and a blinding vision of the possibilities of the tenor sax ... we can appreciate what a fantastic job Rudy Van Gelder, the engineer on the original 1958 sessions, has done on this remastering: when Coltrane takes his final, unaccompanied sax break, the echo is so clean and crisp it almost sounds like you’re in the room with him." - PopMatters.com The liner notes for the essential 1958 album Soultrane contained the first-ever use of the now famous phrase "sheets of sound" to describe John Coltrane's style and sound, in full evidence on these songs. Among the many highlights is an extended version of Billy Eckstine's I Want To Talk About You, which would become a staple of Coltrane's live shows. For this session, Coltrane recruited bandmates from Miles Davis's Quintet: pianist Red Garland, bassist Paul Chambers and drummer Art Taylor, otherwise known as the Red Garland Trio.

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!
