This is Coltrane in his prime to me. Especially as this was the time that Coltrane was going crazy on his King Gizzard & the Lizard Wizzard shit. I mean the guy released 5 great albums in one year in 1961.

Coltrane and Jones were an unmatched musical duo, McCoy's piano does provide a fantastic point of counterbalance as well
Can't help but love this.

My biggest takeaway from this was that this early 60s Coltrane might be my fav era of Coltrane. This syncopated piano over the drums with Coltrane's sax is just so so delicious every time. Although I don't feel like there's enough musical ingenuity to rate this higher in the context of his other work from this period (a lot of the joy of this traces back to "Olé Coltrane"), it's a great album of my fav type of jazz! That's going to the love list every time.
