This collection celebrates the 60th anniversary of jazz pioneer John Coltrane’s 1958 recordings for New York based indie jazz label Prestige Records, presented in a complete chronological sequence. The duration of time covered on this box set may be one calendar year, but the rate at which Coltrane’s musical abilities grew—as well as his fanbase—is remarkable. These 37 tracks serve an inspiring listening session revealing all aspects of Coltrane’s approach that year.
