John Coltrane

Impulse!, 2018

This lavish 5-LP box set documents every single performance recorded by John Coltrane in the pivotal year of 1963, beginning with every take from the previously unheard “Lost Album” studio session and the heart-stopping collection of songs recorded the very next day with singer Johnny Hartman. It also features Roy Haynes sitting in for regular drummer Elvin Jones in the studio, and at a stunning live performance at the Newport Jazz Festival, before ending with the classic quartet on blazing form at the Birdland jazz club. Presented in chronological order, these timeless cuts reveal the unstoppable evolution of a fearless artist.
