My Favorite Things is the seventh studio album by jazz musician John Coltrane, originally released in 1961 on Atlantic Record.

It was the first album to feature Coltrane playing soprano saxophone. An edited version of the title song became a hit single that gained popularity in 1961 on radio. In 1998, the album received the Grammy Hall of Fame award.” - Wiki

“The unforced, practically casual soloing styles of the assembled quartet -- which includes Coltrane (soprano/tenor sax), McCoy Tyner (piano), Steve Davis (bass), and Elvin Jones (drums) -- allow for tastefully executed passages à la the Miles Davis Quintet, a trait Coltrane no doubt honed during his tenure in that band. Each track of this album is a joy to revisit. The ultimate listenability may reside in this quartet's capacity to not be overwhelmed by the soloist. Likewise, they are able to push the grooves along surreptitiously and unfettered. For instance, the support that the trio -- most notably Tyner -- gives to Coltrane on the title track winds the melody in and around itself. However, instead of becoming entangled and directionless, these musical sidebars simultaneously define the direction the song is taking.” - AllMusic
