180g vinyl reissue of classic 1963 John Coltane LP Ballads, includes bonus digipack CD of Ballads with 8 bonus tracks. With Ballads Coltrane looks into the warmer side of things, a path he would take with both Johnny Hartman and with Duke Ellington. Here he lays out for McCoy Tyner mostly, and the results positively shimmer at times. He’s not aggressive. Instead, he’s introspective and at times even predictable, but that is precisely Ballads’ draw.
