Stardust [Rudy Van Gelder edition]
Released: Jan 1963
Four ballads get a sumptuously romantic treatment from John Coltrane, making this deeply emotional music that some listeners may enjoy as the portal to a relaxing evening. The songs were captured at two sessions featuring slightly different bands (pianist Red Garland and bassist Paul Chambers play on both). While nobody doubts Coltrane's improvisational ability, few talk about his tone -- and the sound coming out of his horn is flat-out beautiful. His playing -- and that of cohorts like Freddie Hubbard and Wilbur Harden -- has never sounded grander than on this fully remastered album.
