John William Coltrane, also known as "Trane"; (September 23, 1926 – July 17, 1967) was an American jazz saxophonist and composer. Working in the bebop and hard bop idioms early in his career, Coltrane helped pioneer the use of modes in jazz and later was at the forefront of free jazz. He organized at least fifty recording sessions as a leader during his recording career, and appeared as a sideman on many other albums, notably with trumpeter Miles Davis and pianist Thelonious Monk.

As his career progressed, Coltrane and his music took on an increasingly spiritual dimension. His second wife was pianist Alice Coltrane and their son Ravi Coltrane is a saxophonist. Coltrane influenced innumerable musicians, and remains one of the most significant saxophonists in jazz history. He received many posthumous awards and recognitions, including canonization by the African Orthodox Church as Saint John William Coltrane. In 2007, Coltrane was awarded the Pulitzer Prize Special Citation for his "masterful improvisation, supreme musicianship and iconic centrality to the history of jazz.”

John Coltrane with the Red Garland Trio (aka TRANEING IN) is the third album by jazz musician John Coltrane, issued in 1958 on Prestige Records, catalogue 7123. It was recorded at the studio of Rudy Van Gelder in Hackensack, New Jersey. In 1968 it was reissued as Traneing In, Prestige catalog 7651, and given a different cover photo.

Recorded at the Van Gelder Studio, Hackensack, New Jersey on August 23, 1957. Originally released on Prestige (7123). Includes liner notes by Ira Gitler and Ralph Berton. Digitally remastered by Steve Hoffman. With this session, recorded in the summer of 1957, John Coltrane came out from behind the harmonic safety net of a three-horn frontline to focus on his own imposing gifts as an improviser. As the only horn on TRANEING IN, the young tenor giant revels in the spotlight, demonstrating some of the hard-won lessons from his long apprenticeship with Thelonious Monk's group that very summer at New York's Five Spot club. Red Garland  basks in the cruise-control cool of the Art Taylor/Paul Chambers rhythm team on the title tune, and his jaunty opening chords serve to italicize this blues' deep, deep groove. When Coltrane enters, the rhythm section ups the ante, from Basie-esque tippling to a driving testimonial. Coltrane's dense harmonic variations unwind in nervous, compulsive layers of sound. Yet for all his complexity, a fervent preacher's cry remains at the heart of his every utterance. After a stunning Chambers solo, Garland returns with intricate Bud Powell-like variations and stately, driving block chords which incite Coltrane to further melodic delirium. Typical of his other Prestige dates, Coltrane carefully contrasts edgy moments of tension with interludes of gentle restraint. Chambers' sultry opening chords to "Slow Dance" give this ballad an oddly spectral cast, until Trane doubles up on the changes. "Bass Blues" finds the limber Chambers doubling the melody with Coltrane, as Garland and Taylor intersperse witty little asides, while "You Leave Me Breathless" is Coltrane at his most romantic, soaring on angel wings into an expressive upper register. Finally, Coltrane and Chambers roar ahead like...well, like a runaway train, on "Soft Lights And Sweet Music," as Taylor and Garland hold on for dear life.
