Credit for this album is partially due to Miles Davis, who had somewhat recently purchased Coltrane his first soprano saxophone, previously it had been little used in jazz. This 1961 album also seems to fully mark Coltrane's transformation into modal jazz, another Davis influence, and his modal take on the the classic standard, 'My Favorite Things', from The Sound Of Music soundtrack, remains one of the more iconic jazz songs in history. Rounded out by 3 more standards, performed in modal interpretations that completely redefined the meaning of a 'standards' album, My Favorite Things, is one of the many transcendent jazz albums the legendary John Coltrane is responsible for.[cargo]
