'Coltrane Plays the Blues' is without a doubt a very relaxing and soothing jazz album on which John Coltrane plays 'the blues'. I listened to this two times in a row while playing a video game and despite being relaxing, it was even matching with the game and gave it a calm mood. While not only being this, the instruments are also played very well. Especially the saxophone which is played by John Coltrane himself. 'Coltrane Plays the Blues' is a well sounding, relaxing, soothing album that makes you happy. Just how a good jazz album should be.
