You'll find Johnny Hartman in top form throughout this collection of tunes. He is joined by Illinois Jacquet, Kenny Burrell, Jim Hall, Hank Jones, Milt Hinton, and Elvin Jones. Recorded on October 9 & 17, 1963

"Rudy Van Gelder recorded both sets [ ORGLP0017-45 John Coltrane & Johnny Hartman & ORGLP0027-45 Johnny Hartman / I Just Dropped By To Say Hello ], and they display Hartman's voice amidst a mildly reverberant soundfield, which the 45rpm format exposes to its very limits. Piano is captured particularly well, preserving its timbre and delicate ambience. The 180-gram LPs, pressed at Pallas in Germany, are exceptionally quiet, exposing the texture of Hartman's voice and delicate dynamic gradations of Coltrane's achingly beautiful playing all the better." - Marc Mickelson,, Music 4/5, Sound 4/5

"Hartman’s timing and phrasing are exquisite and he plays it close to the vest..." - Michael Fremer,, Music 8, Sound 8
