John Coltrane’s untimely death at the age of 41 in 1967 wasn’t just a loss for jazz-lovers—it reverberated across all genres of music. Thankfully, the jazz legend and musical innovator left a tremendous catalog that is still beloved after all these years. To celebrate what would have been Coltrane’s 90th birthday, MVD Entertainment Group is releasing Trane 90, a four-disc anthology that traces the rise of his star. In addition to the biggest hits from the height of his career, such as “So What” with Miles Davis and “Tinkle Tinkle” with Thelonious Monk, the collection also includes tracks recordings from his “horn for hire” phase, totaling nearly five hours of music. Bonus material includes a major new essay on Coltrane by saxophonist and author Simon Spillett and period photographs.
