John Coltrane- Plays The Blues MONO

24.99

180 Gram Mono Version. Recorded on 24 october 1960 in NYC, Coltrane Plays the Blues is perhaps a misleading title for this album as Coltrane is not so much playing the blues as bringing the feeling of blues into the idiom of jazz. This memorable album, featuring Mccoy Tyner on piano, Elvin Jones on drums and Steve Davis on bass, Hails from Coltrane's first period as leader of his own quartet, and finds Coltrane playing then highly unusual soprano sax on two numbers - Blues to Bechet, a pianoless tribute to the great Sydney Bechet, and Mr. Syms, where Mccoy Tyner is given the opportunity to really show his stuff, which he does masterfully.
