Product Description & Reviews

A definitive 7-CD collection preserving every last note Trane cut for Atlantic Records, with newly remastered sound! Includes an entire disc of never-before-released material (featuring fascinating alternate takes from the legendary Giant Steps sessions), a lavish 72-page booklet packed with rare photos, interviews, newly penned liner notes, and detailed sessionography. Hailed as the gem of the Rhino/Atlantic jazz catalog, this is one of the most important bodies of work in the entire history of the music! John Coltrane not only made his reputation once and for all during his brief 1959-61 stay at Atlantic Records; he cut enough material to allow the label to continue releasing "new" albums (the Don Cherry collaboration The Avant-Garde) until a year before his 1967 death. The Heavyweight Champion collects those masters plus revealing alternate takes and false starts in a typical handsome Rhino box that is also packed with informative notes and great Lee Friedlander photos. While the sheer volume of music and emotion Coltrane and cohorts throw at the listener might make purchases of individual discs like My Favorite Things, Giant Steps, and Coltrane's Sound a wise choice, those committed enough to jump right in won't regret adding these seven CDs to their collections. Coltrane had kicked his multilayered sonic and spiritual quest into fifth gear by the time of his Atlantic debut, and to say he scorched plenty of earth while under the care of staff producer Nesuhi Ertegun is only the beginning of an ample description of his achievements at the label. Though he was to go even further at Impulse!, where he ended his career, Champion's tracks rate in the very small beyond-five-stars category. --Rickey Wright
