Presented here in its entirety, the celebrated 1962 Ballads album (Impulse AS-32) was the last word in John Coltrane’s ballad playing and became an instant hit. One of the most revolutionary saxophonists in jazz history, Coltrane was also a superb ballad player,capable of creating a very personal and intimate sound. This album features the leader backed by the members of his classic quartet, with McCoy Tyner on piano, Jimmy Garrison on bass, and Elvin Jones on drums.Seven earlier ballad performances by Trane, all of them in a quartet format (with the exception of an amazing duet with Kenny Burrell) have been added to this release, which ends with the saxophonist’s ultimate ballad composition, “Naima”.
Englewood Cliffs, New Jersey, December 1961-November 1962.
