"John Coltrane With The Red Garland Trio-Tranein' In"

This album recorded in August of 1957 is an important milestone in the recorded legacy of John Coltrane. By the time of this recording he had broken his drug habit and kept a heavy practice schedule plus he had joined one of the most important and ground breaking bands in Jazz music....the Thelonious Monk Quartet.With this date even the critics who had been very harsh to Coltrane (with the exception of Ira Gitler) were coming around to recognise Mr. Coltrane as one of the important new voices on the tenor saxophone. Coltrane is heard here with The Red Garland Trio, a band that he made many of his Prestige recordings with. Garland is a wonderful lyrical contrast to Coltrane's intensity. Paul Chambers is the anchor and drive and Arthur Taylor's drums kick butt in the best possible way. Two great blues are featured, the title track (Tranein' In) and Bass Blues and a mood piece written by Alonzo Levister called "Slow Dance" and the beautiful standard "You Leave Me Breathless" and the barn burning up tempo version of Irving Berlin's "Soft Lights and Sweet Music". This album was a giant step by a Jazz giant.
