Album of the Day
THE ATLANTIC YEARS IN MONO
Renown for his revolutionary “sheets of sound” technique and the deep spirituality of his music, John Coltrane was truly a “heavyweight champion” of jazz, and the albums he cut as a bandleader for Atlantic in 1959 and 1960 remain landmark recordings. JOHN COLTRANE: THE ATLANTIC YEARS - IN MONO gives fans a glimpse into how Coltrane's music first appeared to dedicated listeners through the 1960s; when these recordings were originally issued, most consumers were still using monaural equipment. Featuring six of his albums from the Atlantic vaults (mono masters of MY FAVORITE THINGS, COLTRANE JAZZ and COLTRANE'S SOUND were lost in a fire decades ago), this new boxed set represents the heart of John Coltrane's unparalleled legacy.
