    This superb box set collects tracks from John Coltrane's legendary Impulse! albums. Coltrane recorded for Impulse! in the early 1960s, an important transitional period that found him moving from the sinuous post-bop of MY FAVORITE THINGS to straightforward balladry (BALLADS) and freer modal arrangements and experiments (AFRICA/BRASS). On the 26 tracks on this box, Coltrane treats standards ("It's Easy to Remember"), traditional tunes ("Greensleeves"), jazz classics (Ellington's "In a Sentimental Mood"), and originals with his inimitable touch. The quality of the musicianship (the set features McCoy Tyner, Elvin Jones, and Eric Dolphy, among others) is impeccable. The recordings are modern marvels, and everything about the music still comes across as pure inspiration.
