John Coltrane 1963, hand-drawn portrait, age 37, March 6, 1963 during his recording session at the Rudy Van Gelder Studio in New Jersey, of his album “Both Directions At Once: The Lost Album”.
In the years leading up to “A Love Supreme,” his explosive 1965 magnum opus, Coltrane produced eight albums for Impulse! Records featuring the members of his so-called classic quartet — the bassist Jimmy Garrison, the drummer Elvin Jones and the pianist McCoy Tyner — but only two of those, “Coltrane” and “Crescent,” were earnest studio efforts aimed at distilling the band’s live ethic.
“The Lost Album”; a full set of material recorded by the quartet on a single day in March 1963, then eventually stashed away and lost.
The family of Coltrane’s first wife, Juanita Naima Coltrane, recently discovered his personal copy of the recordings, which she had saved, and brought it to the label’s attention.
The album was released by Impulse! Records on June 29, 2018.
The seven lost tracks: “Untitled Original 11383”, “Nature Boy”, “Untitled Original 11386” (Take 1), “Vilia” (Take 3), “Impressions” (Take 3), “Slow Blues” and “One Up, One Down” (Take 1).
Also known as “Trane”, he was an American jazz saxophonist and composer. Posthumously received as special Pulitzer Prize in 2007.
Working in the bebop and hard bop idioms early in his career, Coltrane helped pioneer the use of modes in jazz and was later at the forefront of free jazz.
He led at least fifty recording sessions during his career, and appeared as a sideman on many albums by other musicians, including trumpeter Miles Davis and pianist Thelonious Monk.
Had various stints and many recordings with Miles Davis (First Great Quintet) and Thelonious Monk throughout his short career.
Coltrane died of liver cancer at Huntington Hospital on Long Island on July 17, 1967, at the age of 40.
One of his biographers, Lewis Porter, has suggested that the cause of Coltrane’s illness was hepatitis, although he also attributed the disease to Coltrane’s heroin use.
Coltrane’s death surprised many in the musical community who were not aware of his condition.
