Coltrane, John: My Favorite Things (Vinyl LP)
Released in March 1961, My Favorite Things was the first album to feature John Coltrane playing soprano saxophone in addition to his regular tenor. His soprano takes the lead on two of the album’s four songs, including his unforgettable rendition of the title track, Rodgers and Hammerstein wrote for The Sound of Music musical.
An edited version of the 14-minute original was a radio hit that spring. The song’s success helped introduce Coltrane to a broader audience, while the album went on to inspire future generations of fans. In recognition of the album’s lasting artistic and historical significance, My Favorite Things was inducted into the Grammy(R) Hall of Fame in 1998 and certified gold in 2018. 2014 reissue.
