A few years ago a dude on the Coltrane list posted his favorite solos. I haven't heard all of these, and haven't heard some of them enough to know whether they are favorites, but I thought I'd post the list to get a discussion going. What are your favorites? Personally I'd add "Straight No Chaser" (from Milestones), "Blue in Green" (from youknowwhat), "Someday My Prince Will Come", "Ole" (not a nut about this album, but Coltrane's solo near the end is one of my favorites), the studio "Acknowledgment", "I Want to Talk About You" (from Live at Birdland), and "Serenity" (from First Meditations).

 

Also, #41 and #43 on the list (as well as the honorable mention at the end) are truly phenomenal -- can't wait to hear the cleaned up versions on the upcoming Half Note release.

He has quite a lot but there are some that made me almost jump from my chair:

Wise One (Crescent)

Suite (Transition)

Amen (Sun Ship)

Serraphic Light (Stellar Regions)

Haven't listened to that one in a while...Hank jones' comp is REALLY interesting, he's suggesting changes that nobody wants to follow (at least they don't....although Trane is listening, as he always did)) but it's ok, they don't clash or anything, but then in his solo...even HE doesn't fully call them out :g, but, whoa, that's some top-shelf humanity right there!

You mean  So What (4-2-59)?   I don't know of any LP or CD with this track.  But there may have been a DVD.  It was recorded for WCBS-TV
