The album John Coltrane recorded with his Classic Quartet in 1964 will be released for the first time. Recorded between “Crescent” and “A Love Supreme” the album takes an unfamiliar direction for Coltrane, comprising revisions of his earlier work. In the year of 1964 National Film Board of Canada asked John Coltrane to record the soundtrack for a French-language film titled “Le chat dans le sac”. In June of that year, Coltrane entered Rudy Van Gelder’s studio and recorded five previously-recorded Coltrane originals. For many years viewers of the film who recognized the music thought that they were listening to the original recordings, though in fact they were new and had never been heard. Formats to be released September 27, 2019 include CD, LP and DIGITAL available at the Official John Coltrane Artist Store. ★
