I have a few records that’s been in the collection for a long time. Back to the days when I first started buying first pressings. This is one of them. It’s in good nick. At some point I’m going to upgrade this copy but it sounds really good. This is of course a classic by a classic quintet. It’s been a long time since I listened to this one, but just like all of the other albums by this quintet it’s a pleasure to put on the turntable. I’m keeping my eye out for an even better copy. I just feel this copy has served me well through the years and it sounds good. I’m not a fan of buying records I already have, even though I’m upgrading. I’m always looking forward, to the next album which I don’t have.
I’ve immersed myself in the Coltrane output on Impulse! lately. And I think all of it is such an amazing treasure. I’m appreciating the later avant-garde period a lot and I’ve just bought my first Coltrane album in that style of jazz. It’s on Impulse! and you will soon see which one it is. I couldn’t pass it up at that price, although I wasn’t going to buy another record until I found another copy of RLP 376. It’s a wonderful album, it blows me away with it’s chaotic whirlwinds mixed with more toned-down parts filled with soothing notes. I will seek out a lot of the pieces of the Coltrane catalogue on Impulse! and I can’t wait, but like I mentioned I’m hoping to find a better copy of RLP 376 first. But what a wonderful gift the Coltrane albums on Impulse! are. Don’t you agree?
A tough question for my readers; which one of Cookin’, Relaxin’, Workin’ and Steamin’ is your favorite?
I wish you a great day or evening and stay tuned for more albums from the collection.
