Limited 180gm vinyl LP repressing of this classic Jazz release including digital download. The seminal recordings that make up this album were taped during a transitional period in John Coltrane's musical career. He had first joined the Miles Davis Quintet in 1955 and would form his own celebrated quartet with McCoy Tyner, Jimmy Garrison and Elvin Jones in 1960. In the intervening years, he overcame his narcotics addiction and began to expand on his own musical ideas while experimenting with both the Thelonious Monk Quartet and the Miles Davis Sextet (featuring Bill Evans and Cannonball Adderley). with the latter group, he would record the famous KIND OF BLUE, one of the most fascinating jazz albums of all time. Although Trane belonged to both the Miles Davis and Thelonious Monk groups, he also recorded studio sessions with other musicians and presented his own albums during this period. LUSH LIFE was constructed with material from three different sessions, all of which produced additional material issued in other albums. While Side a is in trio format with no piano (something unusual for Coltrane), Side B features a quintet showcasing Donald Byrd and Red Garland (although both tunes were recorded on different sessions). We have completed the trio session adding 'Slow Trane', which despite bearing a different title is actually an alternate take of 'Trane's Slow Blues'
