John Coltrane’s Prestige years began when he joined the Miles Davis Quintet in 1955. During the next few years, when he was either with Davis or the Thelonious Monk Quartet, he functioned as both leader and sideman for the label. These fine recordings of standards and blues tracks document the first part of his relatively short but highly influential time there in the spotlight. The set even contains three tracks without a piano which happens to be the first time ‘Trane recorded in this manner, other than when Monk was “strolling.”
