Blue Train is arguably one of the most influential titles from Coltrane and one of the greatest Blue Note releases ever. In 1957, right at the very start of his Prestige recording period, 'Trane did this one-off set in New Jersey with Rudy van Gelder with historic result. Joining Coltrane's tenor are Lee Morgan on trumpet, Curtis Fuller on trombone, Kenny Drew at piano, Paul Chambers on bass, and Philly Joe Jones on drums.

"The sound is immediate, with superb instrumental balance, and a big, airy, coherent soundstage. The bass and drums are well captured, serving as deep anchors that allow the horn players to blow away with a sense of controlled yet still astonishing freedom." - Wayne Garcia, The Absolute Sound, June/July 2009, Issue 193, page 125
