In April 1957, John Coltrane signed a two-year contract with Prestige Records. The saxophone player recorded many sessions in the studio, both formal and informal, and often stood in as a sideman. Coltrane then released his first records as a band leader under Prestige and the label gave him a green light to record the mythical Blue Train with Blue Note. Coltrane ’58 – The Prestige Recordings box set gathers together, in chronological order, thirty-seven recordings made by Coltrane in 1958 with Kenny Burrell on guitar; Donald Byrd, Freddie Hubbard and Wilbur Harden on trumpet; Tommy Flanagan and Red Garland on piano; Paul Chambers on double bass; and Jimmy Cobb, Louis Hayes and Art Taylor on drums. At that time, Coltrane was hardly a novice. He was already past 30 and was fighting a drug addiction (the new contract encouraging him to double down on his efforts to quit his bad habits). Coltrane’s style was also going through heavy changes. While not quite reaching the formal revolution of the Atlantic or Impulse! recordings, Trane is nevertheless already deploying his distinct sound, recognizable from miles away, with a controlled and accessible virtuosity. Trane played with a frenetic energy and the music sounds like no other. In this 1958 session recorded in Rudy Van Gelder’s legendary studio in Hackensack, New Jersey, Trane fought his legendary shyness. He created new harmonic progressions while improving his solos. The boxed set features definite versions of Lush Life, Lover Come Back to Me, Stardust, Good Bait and Little Melonae, as well as the first recordings of Nakatani Serenade, The Believer, Black Pearls and Theme for Ernie. Russian Lullaby, Sweet Sapphire Blues and I Want to Talk About You are tenor sax masterpieces. An absolute essential, the recordings have been remastered from their original analogical tapes. John Coltrane’s love story with Prestige ended in April 1959, whereupon he was then ready to embark on a new revolution, the one that would lead him to Atlantic Records. © Marc Zisman/Qobuz
