This terrific re-issue combines a classic Ellington small-group album featuring the founding father of jazz saxophone with a highlight of the Coltrane discography – the Duke’s rippling motif behind the saxophonist’s imperious upward sweep on “In a Sentimental Mood” is timeless.

Meets Coleman Hawkins/And John Coltrane
