“Another Side of JohnColtrane” explores his early career as a respected sideman who rose to fame playing alongside some of the greatest names in jazz, and spotlights some of his best work in sessions led by MilesDavis, Thelonious Monk, Sonny Rollins, Red Garland, Tadd Dameron, and Art Taylor.
Set for release on August 20th and available for pre-order now, this brand-new compilation will be offered as a 2-LP set, on CD, and digitally.
Mastered by the GRAMMYR-winning engineer Paul Blakemore, “Another Side of JohnColtrane” also includes new liner notes by the award-winning journalist Doug Ramsey.
“Oleo” was written in 1954 by Sonny Rollins, who?like many jazz artists?based the composition on the chord structure of George Gershwin’s “I Got Rhythm,” the high-energy tune has since become a standard. This particular version, which appeared on Relaxin’ with the MilesDavis Quintet, was recorded in October 1956 at Rudy Van Gelder’s studio in Hackensack, NJ, and features Davis on trumpet, Coltrane on tenor sax, Red Garland on piano, Paul Chambers on bass, and Philly Joe Jones on drums. The take opens with a false start, followed by brief chatter between the musicians before they launch into the hard-bop staple. In his liner notes, Ramsey observes, “Following Davis’ crisp initial chorus of improvisation, Coltrane begins a conversational solo, at first with only Paul Chambers’ bass as accompaniment. He rides on the inspiration of a rhythm section that became a model for bands around the world.”
