Chi Coltrane Discography of CDs


Golden Classics Golden Classics CD (1996) 5 stars
CD $16.15 Buy It  Details
Chi Coltrane songs Golden Classics sounds like a greatest-hits type compilation. In fact, it is the CD reissue of Chi Coltrane's first album, down to the same front cover, and the same tracks, listed in the same order. The only difference is the addition of two cuts from her second album, 1973's Let It Ride, and some spectacularly inept liner notes, which erroneously imply that Coltrane hasn't recorded since 1977. ~ Charles Donovan Includes liner notes by Mark Marymont. Personnel: Chi Coltrane (vocals, piano, percussion). Liner ...
Best of Chi Coltrane Best of Chi Coltrane CD (1975)

Chi Coltrane CD discography The Best of Chi Coltrane draws only on material from her first two albums, and since these are vastly superior to the rest of her catalog, its title is more than justified. "Thunder and Lightning," "You Were My Friend," "Flyaway Bluebird," and "The Wheel of Life" are undoubtedly fine songs, and every track here is worth having. But anyone looking for an anthology, or career summation, will be disappointed. For an introduction to Coltrane's music, listeners would be better off tracking down her first two albums in their entirety, rather than buying this puzzling amalgamation of them. ~ Charles Donovan Cbs. 2004.

Chi Coltrane albums It's clear from the opening moments of Chi Coltrane's self-titled debut that she's a singer/songwriter a few musical cuts above the rest. Primarily, this is down to her piano playing. Where even the most respected artists of the genre could only play basic block chords or arpeggios (Laura Nyro and Joni Mitchell, respectively), Coltrane is a player's player, and the equal of any session musician. The 11 songs on Chi Coltrane give her ample opportunity to show off. "Thunder and Lightning" (an absolute white soul gem) was her first single and a Top 20 hit, but it tells only a fraction of the story. The rest of the album displays a complete mastery and understanding of gospel ("Go Like Elijah"), as well music of both the Classical and Romantic periods ("The Wheel of Life"), and in addition, she comes up with a few hybrids of her own ("You Were My Friend"). Her vocals, alternatively tender, spirited, angry, and with a wonderful on-the-verge-of-tears quality, are at odds with the dreamy inertia of most mid-'70s performers. They invest every cut with a compelling sense of drama and anxiety. Coltrane may not be a top-drawer wordsmith (although she's certainly quite good), but her lyrics are clear-headed, unpretentious, and direct. For subject matter, she draws mainly on love, friendship, religion (tentatively), and philosophy. Although much press attention focussed on her glacial, blonde good looks (think a less scary, pre-heroin Nico), this album was a triumph of style and substance in equal measure. ~ Charles Donovan

Phenomenation Phenomenation CD (2006)
CD $19.09 Buy It  Details
Chi Coltrane CD discography Over 3 years in the making, this CD contains a collection of the best work to date by composer / guitarist Richard Zeier. Mostly instrumental, this album covers a lot of ground genre-wise. Richard's trademark electric and acoustic guitar work is featured on most of the tracks, with a variety of rhythms that incorporate live Rock grooves and elements of Electronica. What really gives this album the "Cinematic" flavor is the extensive use of orchestra. Occasionally pure orchestra, but more often a hybrid mix of textures that place it solidly in the 21st century. While some of the tracks explore uncharted territory, the music always remains accessible and ...
