Mal Waldron With Jackie McLean, John Coltrane, Idrees Sulieman, Sahib Shihab, And Bill Hardman 컬렉션을 완성하세요. A ground-breaking record from the previous year that has Waldron on piano and Jackie McLean on sax, same as on this session. A real cool & classic record that also features a young John Coltrane just six catalogue numbers after his debut recording for the Prestige Label (PRLP 7105 ). Coltrane is in top form, as are his companions and that is why this LP is more about the whole group and how they perform as a team, tune after tune. Mixed and mastered by Rudy van Gelder and comes in mono.
Mal/2 is an album by American jazz pianist Mal Waldron recorded in 1957 and released on the Prestige label. The CD reissue added two additional recordings from the same sessions originally released on The Dealers (1957) as bonus tracks. A cut above many of the relatively straightforward and blues-based hard bop dates of the time".
With Bill Hardman and Idrees Sulieman (trumpet; separately), Jackie McLean and Sahib Shihab (alto sax; separately), John Coltrane (tenor sax), Julian Euell (bass), Art Taylor and Ed Thigpen (drums; separately). Mal Waldron with the Steve Lacy Quintet. With Steve Lacy (soprano sax), Steve Potts (alto sax), Irene Aebi (cello), Kent Carter (bass), Noel McGhie (drums, percussion).
John Coltrane and Sahib Shihab are masters of tenor and alto saxophone and jazz freaks break into a sweat of joy when they hear these names. Coltrane alone could be a reason to fall in love with this record. You can always hear his very original kind of playing the tenor. No wonder that first pressings of this gem of an album go for 250 USD and even more in fine conditions. It might be a lesser known participation of the great John Coltrane with another bandleader but as he glows permanently on this album the rest of the musicians do the same. The band goes full throttle when needed but there.
