"... all through this recording the intensity has been turned up a notch since A Love Supreme, the immediately preceding quartet recording ... this is great music from a great musician. On that basis alone it stands ... (the title) seems a bit of a misnomer for a work of such seriousness and intensity; in any case, it is an invaluable record of a man struggling to attain to greater clarity of vision."
- All About Jazz

"His solos on soprano sax are as untamed as they are inspired, his 'sheets of sound' pouring forth with creative energy rare even for him ... pianist McCoy Tyner supports with his usual stellar blend of melodicism and percussiveness, his huge chords weaving intricate colours and textures around Coltrane's mystical voicings and drummer Elvin Jones' adventurous thrashing. The year was 1965 and Coltrane had but two more years to live: here, the quartet plays as if they knew it."
- Los Angeles Times

Recorded and released in 1965, this album from John Coltrane and his classic quartet features two originals, a jazz standard and Chim Chim Cheree from the Disney movie Mary Poppins, which had been released the year before. Second bassist Art Davis joins the lineup on Nature Boy.

This album is a high-resolution digital transfer of material originating from an analogue recording. It may contain noise, distortion or other artifacts, and may also contain audio which is limited in bandwidth and dynamic range, due to the technology available at the time of its original creation. As such, it is offered as a high-resolution documentation of a historical release.

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!
