Rare 1957 recordings from John Coltrane. The album features Trane playing tenor on 4 of the album's 8 tracks, some of his lesser-known recordings that offer an interesting early chapter in his career. The main force behind the album is arranger Harry Tubbs – a worthy leader for the date, given the quality of the music. Many of the other players here are small-combo heroes who can also shine brightly in bigger groups: Donald Byrd and Art Farmer on trumpet; Kenny Burrell on guitar; Al Cohn on baritone sax; Eddie Costa on piano and vibes; and Oscar Pettiford on bass – plus Rolf Kuhn, making an early American appearance on clarinet. Coltrane gets in some nice, but short moments on the date, but the bigger charm is the full ensemble work on titles including ‘She Didn't Say Yes’, ‘Turtle Walk’, ‘At Home With The Blues’, ‘Seabreeze’ and ‘Love & The Weather’.
