Live at the Half Note: One Down, One Up is a 2005 album by jazz musician John Coltrane.

Critical reception[edit]

In his review for The Village Voice, music critic Robert Christgau gave the album an "A-" and said that, although it is overpriced and underrecorded to some degree, its selling point is the title track, which features the longest Coltrane solo ever recorded.[1] Allmusic's Thom Jurek gave it four stars and wrote that, despite some audio fades, the album has exceptional sound and is of "historical importance".[2]
