2014 deluxe 180 G audiophile vinyl LP pressing in a gatefold sleeve. Resonance Records achieves the highest possible audio quality, using direct transfers of original master reels from a location recording by Temple's WRTI-FM, re-mastered at 96kHz/24 bit, that were tracked down by Coltrane scholar Yasuhiro Fujioka. This 2-LP set is mastered for vinyl by state-of-the-art engineer Bernie Grundman. This is the first officially sanctioned release of an undiscovered, complete Coltrane performance since 2005. It captures Coltrane in exemplary form, navigating the language he had developed during the last phase of his musical path with passion and pellucid logic. Operating at equivalent levels of invention and energy are three members of his working quintet of one year's standing his wife, Alice Coltrane, on piano; Pharoah Sanders on reeds and flute; and Rashied Ali on drums. Includes a limited edition collector's postcard set containing previously unpublished photos of John Coltrane by Frank Kofsky.
