Rain or Shine Review

by Scott Yanow

This particular two-fer (mostly from 1958) contains two alternate takes of "Trane's Slo Blues," two numbers with trumpeter Donald Byrd that emphasize Coltrane's "sheets of sound" approach and five selections that feature Coltrane's tenor with pianist Red Garland in a quartet. Excellent music from Trane's hard bop years will fill some gaps among Coltrane collectors.
