John Coltrane will have his recordings from 1963 collected in one 3-CD set due for release as 1963: New Directions on Impulse! Records on 16 November. A key year in the jazz legend's history. It features material from Coltrane's recordings during that year from the albums Both Directions at Once: The Lost Album, John Coltrane and Johnny Hartman, Dear Old Stockholm, Newport ‘63 and Live at Birdland. 1963 came to be regarded as a point of transition between his previous jazz masterpieces and the genre-expanding music he went on to create. A five-LP vinyl box set version of the 3-CD collection is also planned for December.
