John Coltrane - My Favorite Things (1961)
Carefuly mastered from the original master tapes for ORG Music by Bernie Grundman. This SACD brings this seminal Coltrane album to life with great clarity and colors.
I have been a big fan of Coltrane for a long time now and was delighted to see this gem on SACD.
If you are not too familiar with this album it was released in 1961 and featured four tracks of which three were quite long and full of creative exploration.
McCoy Tyner, Steve Davis and Elvin Jones round out the quartet which although do improvisation, never seem to stray too far from the Coltrane sound control.
The sound on tis SACD is very good with nice clarity and instrument differentiation and some speaker seperation. The overall sound is nice and warm and very well balanced.
