One of the true greats of jazz, John Coltrane’s career was cut absurdly short by liver cancer at the age of forty. Yet in the twenty two or so years he was active, he created a body of work second to none, helped develop and popularise bebop and hard bop and became one of the most influential saxophonists of his generation. This particular album, one of his first as a leader (hence its subsequent reissue title of The First ‘Trane), remains a ground-breaking and insightful release, featuring two original compositions among the six tracks on display.

1. Bakai
2. Violets For Your Furs
3. Time Was
4. Straight Sheet
5. While My Lady Sleeps
6. Chronic Blues
