The classic 1962 album Duke Ellington & John Coltrane showcased the rising Jazz-saxophone innovator performing alongside the long-established piano institution. While the pairing might have portended a dynamic clash of the musical generations, instead it delivers a casual, respectful, and musically generous meeting of like-minded souls. Ellington and Coltrane play a handful of well known Ellington book numbers, including a supremely lyrical "In a Sentimental Mood" and a soulful, half-lidded version of Billy Strayhorn's "My Little Brown Book." Ellington even supplied the brisk original "Take the Coltrane," allowing plenty of room for Coltrane to let loose with knotty, angular lines.
