On this masterpiece from one of the most influential post-bebop albums, John Coltrane puts the imposters to rest with his rapidly executed saxophone. In addition to the stellar cast, Coltrane showcases his potent skills as a composer. Following a blazing solo by a young Lee Morgan, Coltrane contributes a textbook solo that I am sure was memorized note for note by thousands of young musicians. Plus the underrated pianist Kenny Drew forms, with Paul Chambers and Philly Joe Jones, a classic rhythm section that could swing harder than almost any around during this time.
