Yeah when I listen to it I like it, but when I'm looking at my collection I never pick that one out. I have a lot of albums like that actually...

"The Most Irritating Office Christmas Party Album In The World... Ever"
That's a made-up album title, but if the music that's playing down the corridor from me was an album with a title, that's what it should be called.

Yeah, it's ok. Having come out in 1958 It's inevitably more 'straight' than his later stuff but it's a very good listen nonetheless. Decent without being particularly mind blowing I suppose.

I can't claim to be a Coltrane expert, but I can confidently say that this is excellent (well it blew my mind, anyway):

 


from All About Jazz:

The opening section, "The Father and the Son and the Holy Ghost," which steams uninterrupted into the second part, "Compassion," is a maelstrom of unrelieved intensity. (Elvin) Jones and (Rashied) Ali put up a tremendous din, challenged by Coltrane's freest-ever solo and (Pharoah) Sanders' chicken-slaughtering act. "Compassion" signals a certain calming, in which (McCoy) Tyner returns to the prominence he normally enjoyed in the quartet. Here it's a prelude to one of his most passionate and inventive solos. Then Coltrane wraps it up cleanly, with a brief coda featuring (Jimmy) Garrison, backed skillfully by his old mates. Rashied Ali's band Prima Materia recently released a version of Meditations in which "Compassion" devolves into a bass solo that begins the third section, "Love." Probably Coltrane would have opted for such an arrangement in this age of the CD, but when this original version was recorded it was time to get up and turn the record over. Garrison's angular solo thus begins "Love," preparing the way for a gorgeous entrance from the leader, after which the heat steadily rises, Sanders returns, and it's time for "Consequences," another maelstrom. Tyner's solo following this one is especially striking in its originality and emotional power; for my money, it's his best ever. "Serenity" is another brief coda, and the meditation is over.

I just want to say the obvious... regardless of which album we're talking about specifically, Cotlrane rules. You can't really go too wrong picking up one of his records.

greedrex 12.12.2008 09:43 AM

Critics say it's his best, at least up until Graceland, but I still like his '72 solo effort better. STILL GOOD THOUGH

High Rise - Live [vinyl]

For some reason I thought it would be a good LP to test out my new turntable. Yeah, that's a good idea - test the fidelity of a new turntable with a totally in-the-red recording... :rolleyes:
