From Kaduken
Easily one of the greatest jazz albums of all time. Mixes Coltrane's bop improvisation with classic showtunes and American standards in a way that's both nostalgic and innovative.

After the justly famous take on My Favorite Things and the gorgeous ballad that rounds out side 1, to my ears side 2 is even better, especially Summertime, which I could listen to on repeat. Not quite as good as Giant Steps or Blue Train, my two favorite albums of his, but almost.

Sure Coltrane is good... but to think that this album of standards is better than A Love Supreme it's just not getting the point.
The take on "My Favorite Things" is beautiful, even though some parts of the last round of sax solos are redundant.
The take on "Summertime" is powerful... and naturally, the responsible for that is Elvin Jones. What a force of nature.

It's a strongly good album, but A Love Supreme is bigger than life.

What a strong band, man. One of the best jazz albums I've heard. Still like A Love Supreme a bit more, though this is a little more uplifting and lighthearted.

Unreal interplay.

Is that John Bonham playing on "Summertime"? No? Could've fooled me!

Man, is John Coltrane a genius. Better than A Love Supreme IMO.
