The John Coltrane Quartet album “My Favorite Things” in 1960 on Atlantic Records is considered one of the greatest jazz albums ever produced and one of the best-selling jazz albums. Coltrane said, “It was my favorite piece of all I produced.” The album was inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame. Its ratings include Allmusic 5 out of 5 stars, Rolling Stone 5 of 5, Penguin Jazz 4 of 4, as well as others.
When Coltrane left the famous Miles Davis Quintet he formed his own quartet. Members included John Coltrane on tenor and soprano saxophone, McCoy Tyner on piano, Elvin Jones on drums, and Steve Davis on bass. Davis was later replaced with Jimmy Garrison. Eric Dolphy on bass clarinet also recorded with the group.
The song “My Favorite Things” was composed by Rogers and Hammerstein for their Broadway musical “The Sound of Music”.
