Coltrane (1957)

Artist: John Coltrane

Year: 1957

Genre: Hard Bop

Grade: A-

John Coltrane’s first album is much like Miles Davis’ first album — despite the conservative approach, the major hallmarks that the artist would later become known for are all included. And, of course, so is the talent. The two originals — “Straight Street” and “Chronic Blues” (Coltrane was recently fired by Miles Davis for debilitating heroin addiction) — are highly recommended.
