John Coltrane had yet to move into his modal post-bop phase in 1958 when he recorded a session for Prestige Records on July 11 with trumpeter / flügelhornist Wilbur Harden, pianist Red Garland, bassist Paul Chambers, and drummer Jimmy Cobb. The results of that session were issued in 1962 as Standard Coltrane.
His groundbreaking modal work with Miles Davis on Kind of Blue was still a few months into the future, which makes this set truly historical. The highlight of Standard Coltrane is most definitely the beautifully arranged version of the song "Invitation".
Vinyl produced by Original Jazz Classics for Prestige Records in 2014.
