John Coltrane is almost never mentioned concerning his involvement with Red Garland and his trio. Coltrane recorded 5 albums with Red Garland and they were all great. All of these albums were on the mellow side and this one is no exception. All these albums are scattered throughout the Jazz Con Class Radio rotation and located in their respective playlist. I have actually featured one of the albums completely before, “Soul Junction.” This particular album here, “Traneing In” will be featured also in its entirety and for a couple of weeks, check the schedule link for play times, enjoy!

About the album:

With this session, recorded in the summer of 1957, John Coltrane came out from behind the harmonic safety net of a three-horn frontline to focus on his own imposing gifts as an improviser. As the only horn on TRANEING IN, the young tenor giant revels in the spotlight, demonstrating some of the hard-won lessons from his long apprenticeship with Thelonious Monk’s group that very summer at New York’s Five Spot club. Red Garland basks in the cruise-control cool of the Art Taylor/Paul Chambers rhythm team on the title tune, and his jaunty opening chords serve to italicize this blues’ deep, deep groove. When Coltrane enters, the rhythm section ups the ante, from Basie-esque tippling to a driving testimonial. Coltrane’s dense harmonic variations unwind in nervous, compulsive layers of sound. Yet for all his complexity, a fervent preacher’s cry remains at the heart of his every utterance. After a stunning Chambers solo, Garland returns with intricate Bud Powell-like variations and stately, driving block chords which incite Coltrane to further melodic delirium.

"Since I discovered this station by chance I listen most every day. The music is eclectic and covers the wide spectrum of Jazz from New Orleans style through the Avant Garde to solid fusion. I was a jazz programmer for 12 years and I have to admit that on this station I have heard recordings by band leaders such as, Charlie Mingus, Joe Zawinul, Donald Byrd, Duke Ellington, Abbey Lincoln, Charlie Hayden, Art Blakey, Billie Holiday, Chick Corea and many other pressings that I did not know existed. The station has been an education to me. i thought I knew it all, but I'm now humbled by the quality, width and depth of the programing. This is an excellent site for beginners and old fogies like me. Thank you Jose!"

"A site for true jazz lovers, for TRUTH lovers, for anyone looking to
escape the garbage passed off as real music today and experience
something real. Art at its finest, and I listen in just about every
day. Thank you for your good and necessary work, Jose."

"This is a real jazz station, and I can tell the announcer is a New Yorker. I'm a former NYC resident (born and raised) in Greenwich Village where many classic jazz clubs once existed, the Village Vanguard is still there. I hope Jazz Con Class Radio remains on the air for many years to come!"
