John Coltrane - The Lost Album is now FOUND, and is the WRTI 'Jazz Album of the Week'

Bookmark and Share

New music from John Coltrane!  I bet you thought you'd never hear that again-until this recording from 1963 surfaced. Trane and his classic quartet with pianist McCoy Tyner, bassist Jimmy Garrison and drummer Elvin Jones were on the cusp of a transformation. In John Coltrane: Both Directions at Once: The Lost Album you can hear it from the first notes.

You might this think this record was "lost" on purpose because it was made in a quick five-hour session before a gig at Birdland. But that's not the case. These guys were at their peak, and ready. The session at Van Gelder Studios in New Jersey was pushed back an hour so the guys could get to Manhattan on time.

Coltrane: Both Directions at Once: The Lost Album became Coltrane's highest-grossing record. This was an exclusive Thank-You Gift during our recent Marathon for Music, and it's still available.  Give Now to find out how.
