Stardust is an album by American jazz musician John Coltrane, released in October 1963 via Prestige Records.

Stardust is assembled from unissued results of two separate recording sessions at the studio of Rudy Van Gelder in 1958. As Coltrane's fame grew during the 1960s long after he had stopped recording for the label, Prestige used unissued recordings to create new marketable albums without Coltrane's input or approval.

In 1958, John Coltrane had yet to take the modal post-bop plunge. He was still a hard bopper, although his "sheets of sound" solos were certainly among the most interesting, creative, and distinctive that bop had to offer in the late '50s.

Stardust contains some highlights of two bop-oriented Coltrane dates from 1958: one is a July 11 session with trumpeter/flügelhornist Wilbur Harden, pianist Red Garland, bassist Paul Chambers, and drummer Jimmy Cobb; the other is a December 26 session with Garland, Chambers, trumpeter Freddie Hubbard, and drummer Art Taylor.

At both sessions, Coltrane's playing is quite engaging. He is a lyrical, expressive ballad player on "Then I'll Be Tired Of You", "Stardust", and "Time After Time", but he swings fast and aggressively on "Love Thy Neighbor" (the only track on this 39-minute program that isn't a ballad).

At both sessions, Coltrane is well served by Garland's piano and Chambers' bass. When Coltrane was playing alongside those jazzmen in Miles Davis' 1955-1957 quintet, he enjoyed a strong rapport with both of them. It is no coincidence that Prestige's A&R department united the three so often; Prestige knew how compatible all of them were.

Stardust paints a consistently attractive picture of Coltrane's 1958 output.

Check out the tracks: “Stardust” and “Then I'll Be Tired Of You”.
