John Coltrane Blue Train blue note 91721 album coverThis was Coltrane´s only recording for Blue Note as lead. He not only addresses the tunes at hand, but also simultaneously reinvents himself as a multifaceted interpreter of both hard bop as well as sensitive balladry - touching upon all forms in between. Blue Train can easily be considered among the most important and influential albums not only of John Coltrane's career, but of the entire genre of jazz music as well.
