John Coltrane did some of his most monumental work for Impulse! Records, cutting numerous sessions for the label from 1962 until his death in 1967. This fine collection brings together some of the saxophone legend’s more popular recordings, including “Bessie’s Blues,” “Crescent,” and “Afro-Blue” as well as the unforgettable “In a Sentimental Mood” from a collaboration with Duke Ellington and a gorgeous “Lush Life” cut with the singer Johnny Hartman as part of the only vocal session Coltrane participated in during the later part of his career. Although they are majestic performances in their own right, it must be noted that “Naima” and “My Favorite Things” are not the classic original versions (done first for Atlantic Records) but excellent live updates from a few years later.(A previously unreleased version of "Impressions" is also included). In all, a top-notch primer for the neophyte Coltrane listener.
