Released in 1964, Crescent is one of sax master John Coltrane’s finest albums, featuring the talents of McCoy Tyner, Jimmy Garrison and Elvin Jones. During 1964 John Coltrane spent the least amount of time in the recording studio of his entire solo career. It wasn’t until April 27 that ‘Trane, along with Tyner, Garrison and Jones went to the familiar surroundings of Rudy Van Gelder’s Englewood Cliff’s studio to begin work on the album that came to be called, Crescent.

They recorded all the tracks that appear on Crescent, along with “Songs Of Praise,” but not the final versions of the album’s five tracks. From that first day’s recording the ones that make the final cut are, “Lonnie’s Lament,” “The Drum Thing” and “Wise One.” The first two of these three tracks make up all of side two of the album and on “Lonnie’s Lament” Coltrane does not solo at all, instead it features a long bass solo by Garrison.
