For his second album, John Coltrane (tenor saxophone) joined forces with his
Prestige label-mate Red Garland (piano) to command a quartet through a five-song
outing supported by a rhythm section of Paul Chambers (bass) and Art Taylor
(drums). The absence of any unessential instrumentalists encouraged a decidedly
concerted focus from Coltrane, who plays with equal measures of confidence and
freedom. The Coltrane original "Traneing In" Is a rousing blues that exemplifies
the musical singularity between Coltrane and Garland. Even though Garland, the
pianist, takes charge from the start, the structure of the arrangement permits
the tenor to construct his solo seamlessly out of Garland's while incrementally
increasing in intensity, yet never losing the song's underlying swinging bop.
Chambers gets in on the action with an effervescent run that quotes the seasonal
favorite "Santa Claus Is Coming to Town." The poignant "Slow Dance" is a dark
ballad with a simple, refined tune that is established by Coltrane, then turned
over to Chambers, then Garland, before the tenor brings it home with one final
verse. Coltrane's second original composition "Bass Blues" showcases Chambers'
ability to mirror even the most intricate or seemingly improvised lines from
Coltrane. And "You Leave Me Breathless" provides everything that a love song
should with long, languid runs by Coltrane, Garland and what is arguably Paul
Chambers at his absolute finest. The album draws to a close on a bebop lover's
dream — a fast and furious interpretation of the Irving Berlin classic "Soft
Lights and Sweet Music."
The original album title and cover with its abstract painting was changed in
later pressings to "Tranein' In," and revised to show a monochrome portrait of
