Side Steps

I received this 5 disc boxed set for Christmas and haven’t stopped listening to it since. The remastering and quality of the music is superb!! The music here in opened up a part of his music I had not heard before, being only familiar with his more popular albums. This is definitely a side of the artist that must be heard if you count yourself as a fan. John Coltrane’s legendary Prestige recordings as a sideman to a host of jazz legends including Gene Ammons, Tadd Dameron, Red Garland, and Sonny Rollins. This 5-disc box set features 24-bit remastering from the original analog master tapes, a 72-page book with rare photographs, discography, and sessionography, some great essays by noted music historian Ashley Kahn, interview transcript with Prestige founder Bob Weinstock, and fully reproduced original album cover artwork and notes. 10 albums are represented in this set, some in their entirety. This completes the Prestige label’s trilogy of John Coltrane. Check out “Fearless Leader” and “Interplay” the first 2 boxed sets in this trilogy.
