After John Coltrane’s landmark 1960 Atlantic Records debut Giant Steps, the revered jazz saxophonist recorded a series of groundbreaking albums for the influential label. In just four years, Coltrane released as many albums, including COLTRANE JAZZ, MY FAVORITE THINGS, COLTRANE PLAYS THE BLUES, and COLTRANE’S SOUND.
This summer, Rhino will honor the legacy of John Coltrane by reissuing all four of those albums on 180-gram vinyl, each with their original artwork. Each LP was pressed at RTI with lacquers cut from the original analog masters by Bernie Grundman. COLTRANE JAZZ and COLTRANE PLAYS THE BLUES are available now and MY FAVORITE THINGS and COLTRANE’S SOUND will be available July 27 at retail outlets, including www.rhino.com, for a suggested list price of $24.98 each.
