TRANE 90 REVIEWED
“Trane 90” has been my go-to Thanksgiving music, as I work on a ton of material. While I was never super into Jazz, I could appreciate Coltrane’s flow. The guy starts his career as a sideman making Monk and Davis sound amazing. Hell, most of the first disc is dedicated to those sessions. It’s somewhere between his solo stuff and his covers that we hear the guy’s immense range. The saxophone is such a weird instrument for younger listeners. I can’t hear a sax without thinking of The E Street Band.
More than anything, Trane 90 is a great entry point for new fans that want to learn more about American Jazz circa 1957-1967. It was a vibrant period and well worth music fans exploring these new sounds. My favorite disc of the set is Disc 4. Listening to Coltrane’s private tapes and direct broadcasts created something that could almost stand on its own. I know that most of you guys have gone digital for music, but pick up this 4 CD set. You won’t regret it!
