John Coltrane's "My Favorite Things" - A Seminal Album in Jazz History

Explore Coltrane's Pioneering Path in Modal Jazz

Available Online at and In-Store at Zhivago Gifts, Galway

Delve into the transformative sounds of John Coltrane's "My Favorite Things", a pivotal album in his discography and a cornerstone of modern jazz. Recorded in late 1960, this album marks Coltrane's departure from the hard bop idiom towards his own innovative modal explorations, influenced by his work with Miles Davis.

A New Direction with a Legendary Quartet: This was the first album recorded with Coltrane's new working band, featuring McCoy Tyner on piano, Elvin Jones on drums, and Steve Davis on bass (who was the first in a line of bassists before Jimmy Garrison). The chemistry and talent of this quartet are evident throughout the album, laying the groundwork for many future jazz explorations.

A Must-Have for Jazz Aficionados: This album is essential for anyone interested in the history of jazz and the evolution of Coltrane's music. "My Favorite Things" is not just a jazz album; it's a testament to Coltrane's genius and his enduring influence on the genre.
