2014 vinyl LP pressing reissue. Recorded in 1958 during a session at the studio of Rudy Van Gelder in Hackensack, NJ, Black Pearls captures Coltrane at the height of his powers, perfecting what would come to be known as his "sheets of sound" soloing technique. With an all-star combo in tow featuring trumpeter Donald Byrd and the Red Garland Trio (Garland on keys, Paul Chambers on bass and Art Taylor on drums), Coltrane displays an absolute mastery of his craft in what would be the group's last date together. Another gem in an illustrious career, Coltrane's Black Pearls offers in equal measure dazzling solos and unmatched group unity. An essential recording for Coltrane fans and jazz-lovers alike, Black Pearls is now available on vinyl.
