Eight Classic Albums

All Music Guide - Steve Leggett
Mostly through his association with Miles Davis, under contract to Prestige Records in the late '50s (Davis was playing out his string with the label and had Columbia Records waiting in the wings), tenor saxophone great John Coltrane began playing other sessions with Prestige (he had appeared as a session man with Prestige as early as 1954, but his pace picked up when he began working with Davis). Coltrane eventually signed his own contract with the label in 1957. This set collects eight of the albums Prestige issued with Coltrane's involvement between 1954 and 1958, including 1954's All Mornin' Long (with the Red Garland Trio), 1956's Informal Jazz (with Elmo Hope), ...

Some of these albums were actually Coltrane-led sessions and some were blowing sessions with Coltrane sitting in, and they have been packaged and repackaged many times and under different titles. They are what they are -- an important set of sessions that show Coltrane growing and beginning to come into his own.
