    Personnel: John Coltrane (soprano saxophone, tenor saxophone); Johnny Hartman (vocals); Eric Dolphy (bass clarinet, alto saxophone); McCoy Tyner (piano); Jimmy Garrison, Reggie Workman (upright bass); Elvin Jones, Roy Haynes (drums).
    This second volume in Universal/Impulse's reissuing of the albums of John Coltrane contains some choice titles. For those who love the early Impulse Trane, there is certainly something here for you in the John Coltrane and Johnny Hartman collection of ballads. There's also the excellent quartet era with Live at Birdland, Crescent, and the seminal A Love Supreme, the record that changed everything ever after for him. In addition, there is the 1963 album Impressions, a compilation of sorts. There is a long quartet selection called "Up 'Gainst the Wall" (1962), a beautiful but brief "After the Rain" with drummer Roy Haynes sitting in for Elvin Jones from 1963, the title cut, and opening number "India," recorded with Eric Dolphy on bass clarinet and Reggie Workman as an additional bassist. A classic but seldom discussed collection. The sound is terrific and the price is certainly right for this box if you don't have these titles. ~ Thom Jurek
