John Coltrane, Both Directions At Once: The Lost Album June 16, 2018 12:18

If you're looking to buy some jazz LPs, we've got some of the classics in stock. In addition to these jazz records, we have John Coltrane's lost album coming in soon.

On March 6, 1963, John Coltrane and his Classic Quartetof McCoy Tyner, Jimmy Garrison, and Elvin Jones recorded an entire studio album at the legendary Van Gelder Studios. This music, which features unheard originals, will finally be released 55 years later. This is, in short, the holy grail of jazz.

Unknown until 2004 and unheard until now, these recordings by the John Coltrane Quartet are, as Sonny Rollins says in the liner notes, “like finding a new room in the Great Pyramid.” With the discovery of the ¼”reference tapes that Coltrane took home with him after the recording session - a session that was completely unknown and for which master tapes don’t exist – an important chapter in the evolution of Coltrane’s music can now be heard for the first time.
Keep a look out for our updates on this landmark release.
