John Coltrane Lush Life on Hybrid Mono SACD

Analogue Productions' Prestige Mono Series

Cut from the Original Mono Master Tapes by Kevin Gray

Here is one of the musical giants of the 20th century, poised on the precipice of greatness. Between the spring of 1957 and the winter of 1958, during which time Lush Life was recorded, the music of tenor saxophonist John Coltrane was developing in giant steps, thanks in great part to a six-month 1957 stint with Thelonious Monk that had much to do with sharpening Coltrane’s harmonic conception and torrential attack.

Lush Life contains Coltrane’s first recordings as sole leader, his initial date fronting a pianoless trio, and one of his first extended readings of a ballad, Billy Strayhorn’s resplendent title track. We also hear him at the helm of a quartet and quintet, featuring pianist Red Garland, with trumpeter Donald Byrd added to “Lush Life.” Coltrane and jazz would never be the same!

SACD jackets feature printed wraps mounted to chipboard shells, producing an authentic, "old school" look and feel.
