Coltrane

Currently listening to John Coltrane's Blue Train. Besides being first album that Coltrane released under his own name as a bandleader, it was also his personal favourite. While all tracks are amazingly good, do listen to the high energy Locomotion and the rhythmic Blue Train. While many people love the slow I'm Old Fashioned, I found it a bit out of place in this fast paced bebop album. Other than that one single oddity, this is an album all music lovers should certainly listen to.
