John Coltrane & Johnny Hartman



This essential 1963 album, Coltrane’s only full album with a bona-fide vocalist, came on the heels of the lovely instrumental Ballads album of a year earlier. Both these efforts put to rest any lingering criticism regarding his ability to carry off a ballad work. Johnny Hartman’s burnished baritone and supple, elegant phrasing is masterfully supported by John Coltrane and his classic quartet. “They Say It’s Wonderful” and “Lush Life” are the stand out tracks among these six lovely standards. Total Time: 31 minutes
