June 8, 2018 In News. Featuring two previously unheard and unknown tracks. In an age where (seemingly) your every move is documented, it’s difficult to imagine an entire album getting ‘lost’, especially one by John Coltrane. But such is the case with Both Directions at Once: The Lost Album, an unreleased studio album recorded by John Coltrane and his Classic Quartet – McCoy Tyner, Jimmy Garrison, and Elvin Jones, released for the first time via Impulse! this June.
It was the first album to feature Coltrane playing soprano saxophone. The record became a major commercial success. In 1998, the album received the Grammy Hall of Fame award. It attained gold record status in 2018, having sold 500,000 copies.
Coltrane is a 1962 studio album by jazz saxophonist John Coltrane. When reissued on CD, it featured a Coltrane composition dedicated to his hero "Big Nick" Nicholas which Coltrane would record later the same year with his Ellington collaboration Duke Ellington & John Coltrane. The composition "Tunji" was written by Coltrane in dedication to the Nigerian drummer, Babatunde Olatunji.
An album of previously unheard original compositions by the legendary jazz saxophonist has been discovered 55 years after its recording. Sonny Rollins, a peer of Coltrane’s and also regarded as one of the greatest jazz saxophonists of all time, described the discovery as like finding a new room in the Great Pyramid. Among the seven tracks are two completely unheard original compositions, called Untitled Original 11383 and Untitled Original 11386, both of which are played on soprano saxophone
John William Coltrane, also known as "Trane" (September 23, 1926 – July 17, 1967), was an American jazz saxophonist and composer. Working in the bebop and hard bop idioms early in his career, Coltrane helped pioneer the use of modes in jazz and was later at the forefront of free jazz. He led at least fifty recording sessions during his career, and appeared as a sideman on many albums by other musicians, including trumpeter Miles Davis and pianist Thelonious Monk. As his career progressed, Coltrane and his music took on an increasingly spiritual dimension.
John Coltrane – tenor saxophone McCoy Tyner – piano Jimmy Garrison – bass Elvin Jones – drums. My Favourite Things" sees Elvin and Coltrane performing on another level compared to previous performances. Tyner is a little hesitant, but his block chords sometimes go off into journeys into uncharted territory. It's a surprisingly short little performance at 14 minutes, but Coltrane's solo gives hints as to how the song would eventually sound in its final form. John Coltrane – tenor saxophone, soprano saxophone Pharoah Sanders – tenor saxophone Donald Garrett – bass, clarinet Frank Butler – vocals, drums Juno Lewis – vocals, percussion McCoy Tyner – piano Jimmy Garrison – bass Elvin Jones – drums. The original release of this album is somewhat of a compilation.
