While John Coltrane first gained attention for his revolutionary ‘sheets of sound’ technique, it was the deep spirituality of his music that really made his recordings as a band leader such classics. The albums Coltrane recorded for Atlantic in 1959 and 1960 represent the heart of his legacy.

A reconfiguration of the 1995 Rhino box set which brought these legendary recordings to CD for the first time, Heavyweight Champion is presented in a sleek, hard clamshell box, with the CDs held in elegant card sleeves, and a glossy 78-page booklet.

Original Atlantic producer Joel Dorn supervised the 1995 reissue from the earliest generation masters Coltrane recorded during the 1959-1961 stint with the label, and in the process discovered an entire reel of tape from John’s first Atlantic solo sessions.

This unissued material, including revealing takes of such landmarks as ‘Giant Steps’ and ‘Naima’, makes up an entire album of this superb 7 CD box set.

•             The booklet features notes by Coltrane biographer Louis Porter plus testimonials from such contemporaries as Yusef Lateef and Charles Lloyd. It also includes a rare interview with ‘Cousin Mary’ Alexander offering a personal view of jazz’s true Heavyweight Champion, as well as a collection of stunning photographs.

•             Includes more than an hour of rare material from John’s very first Atlantic sessions

•             Such great musicians as Milt Jackson, Don Cherry, Charlie Haden, McCoy Tyner, Elvin Jones, Eric Dolphy and others can be heard playing in support on Heavyweight Champion

American jazz great John Coltrane emerged in the 1950s, playing tenor and soprano sax with Dizzy Gillespie, Miles Davis and Thelonious Monk. A leader of “hard bop”, in the 1960s he led his own groups and changed the face of jazz with experimentation and improvisation, his later recordings reflecting his belief that music was a form of spiritual expression. Sometimes called simply ‘Trane, his recordings include Giant Steps (1959), My Favorite Things (1960), Olé (1961) and A Love Supreme (1964). In his later recordings he collaborated on avante-garde music with his wife, Alice Coltrane (b. Alice McLeod, 1937-2007), who had a career in her own right. The band sometimes called Coltrane’s “classic quartet” of the early 1960s included McCoy Tyner (piano), Elvin Jones (drums) and Jimmy Garrison (bass). Despite a relatively ...
