A previously unreleased John Coltrane album is coming next month.
On September 27th, Impulse!/Ume will release a new album from legendary saxophonist John Coltrane. The album is called Blue World and it was recorded in 1964, the same year he recorded Crescent and A Love Supreme. The music was recorded for the Quebec film The Cat in the Bag. (Only a couple of minutes of music actually ended up in the film.)
The album was recorded at New Jersey’s Van Gelder Studios. According to a press release, Blue World was mastered from the original analog tape. Here is the tracklist for the album:
1. “Naima (Take 1)”
