Blue Train is the second studio album by John Coltrane, released in 1957 on Blue Note Records. Recorded at the Van Gelder Studio in Hackensack, New Jersey, it is Coltrane's second solo album, the only one he recorded for Blue Note as a leader, and the only one he conceived personally for the label. It has been certified a gold record by the RIAA.

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, Coltrane 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 disc is packed solid with sonic evidence of Coltrane's innate leadership abilities. He not only addresses the tunes at hand, but also simultaneously reinvents himself as a multifaceted interpreter of both hard bop as well as sensitive balladry -- touching upon all forms in between...Without reservation, Blue Train can easily be considered in and among the most important and influential entries not only of John Coltrane's career, but of the entire genre of jazz music as well." -Lindsay Planer,
