Coltrane - Crescent
The great man on the cusp of change. One foot in the blues and modal Miles territory and the other reaching for A Love Supreme and beyond. For me it's the essential JC release.


Seconded! One of my favourite Coltrane albums. I would also recommend "Giant Steps" and "Blue Train" as the perfect introduction to Trane.

Another two favorites of mine that haven't been mentioned elsewhere in this thread are "Destination Out" by Jackie McLean and "Gravy Train" by Lou Donaldson.

...and if you are in a funkier mood, "The Sidewinder" by Lee Morgan and "A Night In Tunisia" by Art Blakey & The Jazz Messengers.
