    Going through the Heavyweight Champion Box Set from Atlantic, it is interesting to see that Village Blues was recorded on the same day as My Favorite Things. Not knowing much about Coltrane Jazz before listening to this box set, anyone familiar with My Favorite Things will instantly recognize McCoy Tyner's chord voicing style and discern that this track really stands out from the rest. It really belongs on the My Favorite Things album but I'll take it anywhere I can get it.

      All of Coltrane's albums as leader for Atlantic are essential. This, his second, contains the standout track "Village Blues" which is the first to feature his classic group with Mccoy Tyner and Elvin Jones. The rest features the Freddie Freeloader, Kind of Blue ensemble minus Davis and Adderley, and is all seriously solid, must have Jazz.

        While the posthumous Like Sonny is the first commercial release to include a Coltrane line-up with pianist McCoy Tyner, Coltrane Jazz is the first "official" release in the saxophonist's cannon to do so.

        Recorded in '59 and '60, but released in 1961, Coltrane Jazz is Trane's second record under his Atlantic contract (which soon enough would morph into his epochal deal with Impulse!). These recordings are the first that came out in his lifetime to feature the initial versions of his classic quarter: Trane, Paul Chambers, Tyner and Elvin Jones. There were other line-ups on individual tracks but it is "Village Blues", with Tyner, Jones and bassist Steve Davis that stands out.

        Coming after his innovative Atlantic debut Giant Steps, the worst that can be said of the music on Coltrane Jazz is that it is extremely solid, bluesy bop. A landmark recording for most any other musician is a fine transitional record for Trane.
