"... it's got some of the most sensitive, heartfelt music that any lover ever sang on a horn."
- NPR

"It is his genius clarified through the cheesecloth of standards that makes this recording so timeless."
- All About Jazz

"... revelatory ... gives us the gentle side of the quartet that less than two years later would give us A Love Supreme. The warm tone of ‘Trane’s tenor is a joy to hear, as is the smooth piano of McCoy Tyner, but for me the highlight is the joint timekeeping of Jimmy Garrison and Elvin Jones ... Garrison plays with such effacing beauty that only repeated listenings will show the wonder of it all ... if you don’t have (this album), you need to get (it) ..."
- SoundStage!

Inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame in 2008, this 1963 release from John Coltrane and his celebrated quartet puts the emphasis on ballads, as promised by the title. According to the original liner notes, Coltrane and his musicians had never played any of these songs before; they brought sheet music into the studio and discussed and rehearsed each tune briefly just prior to recording, mostly done in one take.

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
