Yeah. I've owned it for ages but never got around to listening to it.

This is certainly his masterpiece, but if you've enjoyed it, make sure to check Giant Steps, Blue Train and My Favorite Things. That 1957-1961 period for him is just amazing.

Perhaps my favorite Coltrane song:

Giant Steps and Blue Train are both masterpieces. Some of his later work is impenetrable but brilliant all the same.

There's an entire vocal jazz genre. Johnny Hartman, Billie Holiday, Nina Simone, etc.

I'll add Louis Armstrog, Ella Fitzgerald (my favorite, because of her scat singing prowess) and Chet Baker to the list.

Chet Baker's Let's Get Lost is one of my favs.

Chet Baker was unique and I LOVE all the Ella Fitzgerald / Charlie Parker collaborations.

Side note: John Coltrane IMO was in a class of his own though.
He makes just about everything else sound bland and unnecessary in comparison.
True genius.

Agree with both of you. Chet Baker was so good that I'm not even sure if I prefer him as a singer or trumpetist.

His version of But Not For Me is a good example. The initial solo is brilliant in its simplicity, then you get those soothing, but emotionally charged vocals, followed by a more complex and detailed solo.

The Jazz - discussion, recommendations, shit, cat

A Love Supreme is unquestionably a masterpiece and an inspirational work, but I prefer the early stuff. My Favorite Things, Giant Steps, Blue Train and Olé Coltrane (the underrated spiritual successor to Sketches of Spain) are the ones I listen to the most.

Don't overlook the work of Alice Coltrane either. Journey in Satchidananda is a milestone in avant-garde jazz.

Speaking of Coltranes, Ravi plays on an excellent new album with Jack DeJohnette and Matt Garrison called In Movement.

I'm well aware of that, I meant instrumental jazz with vocals. None of the albums I've ever listened to have had them.
