Legacy [Impulse!]

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Steve Futterman
When you consider that there’s hardly a contemporary jazz musician, let alone saxophonist, around who hasn’t been profoundly touched by the music of John Coltrane, you realize how aptly titled this stunning collection is. A mélange of some of the master saxophonist’s most profound work, Legacy doesn’t try to present the Coltrane story in chronological order or give any strict account of his artistic development. Rather it provides overwhelming evidence, through his brilliant music making, of what an influential force he was and continues to be.

Barnes & Noble - Steve Futterman
When you consider that there’s hardly a contemporary jazz musician, let alone saxophonist, around who hasn’t been profoundly touched by the music of John Coltrane, you realize how aptly titled this stunning collection is. A mélange of some of the master saxophonist’s most profound work, Legacy doesn’t try to present the Coltrane story in chronological order or give any strict account of his artistic development. Rather it provides overwhelming evidence, through his brilliant music making, of what an influential force he was and continues to be. While a couple of tracks capture Coltrane with the two most important bandleaders he worked for before starting his own group -- Miles Davis and Thelonious Monk -- the majority of the four-disc set is devoted to Coltrane’s work as a leader. And what tracks these are! “Naima,” “Dear Lord,” “My Favorite Things,” “After the Rain” -- these and many more are acknowledged masterworks. The lesser-known tracks, including such jewels as “Sun Ship,” “Offering,” and “Wise One,” are just as vital. People will be listening to Coltrane for the rest of this century and beyond, and this set gives you plenty of reasons why.
