Original Album Plus Bonus Track!
John Coltrane's first official live album was recorded at the iconic Greenwich Village jazz club in NYC in 1961 and released on the Impulse! label the following year. Produced by the great Bob Thiele the sterling three track set finds Trane flanked by Eric Dolphy on bass clarinet plus veteran sidemen McCoy Tyner on piano, Elvin Jones on drums, and Reggie Workman on bass. One side of the original LP was devoted to the immortal "Chasin' The Trane," but it's joined here by the bonus cut "Blue Train" recorded live in Stockholm, Sweden in 1961.
