180 gram HQ RTI-pressing "... a jazz album by John Coltrane originally recorded in 1960, but released in June 1964 (according to Atlantic Records reissue liner notes). Since the tracks were put together and released four years after being recorded, the album was overshadowed by Coltrane's later, more experimental works that followed his so-called "Middle Period." Despite being underrated, Coltrane's Sound actually belongs to the same landmark series of recordings that produced the two more popular albums, My Favorite Things and Coltrane Plays the Blues. This collection thus stands on its own as a very significant and impressive album that features some of the best work by John Coltrane and his renowned quartet -- McCoy Tyner (Piano), Elvin Jones (Drums) and Steve Davis (Bass) -- on the Atlantic label. Most of the tracks are original Coltrane compositions (some based on melodies reworked from other songs), except for "The Night Has a Thousand Eyes" and "Body and Soul."
