    Coltrane's debut on Prestige.

    John Coltrane recorded so frequently for the Prestige label during '56-'58 that it's tough to figure out where to start. This May 1957 recording, coming just after his departure from the Miles Davis Quintet, is a pretty good initiation.

    The rhythm section (Mal Waldron and Red Garland on piano, Paul Chambers on bass, Al Heath on drums) is excellent and they're joined by Johnny Splawn (trumpet) and Sahib Shihab (baritone sax)
