An indispensable recording for admirers of Coltrane's ballad playing, STANDARD COLTRANE emphasizes this moving, stirring aspect of Coltrane's career. The four long tracks serve as a reminder that the tenor saxophonist's skill does not lie exclusively in his faster, more energetic work, but that he is capable of great tenderness and romanticism. "Invitation" and "Don't Take Your Love From Me" are replete with the kind of singing solos Coltrane excels in, with his sax assuming all the tones and pitches of a human voice.
While indisputably romantic, STANDARD COLTRANE is not sentimental, and it suffers only from a bit of disorganization here and there, as well as the sense of Coltrane holding back from his own explorations to be in sync with his rhythm section. There is a vague underlying ambivalence on "I'll Get By" and "Spring Is Here" when the musicians seem to be heading in different directions, but this emotionally satisfying album is not ruined by these lapses.
