John Coltrane 89 Today And

Or what remains of today. We hear it's tomorrow in many parts of this old world.

This yr. also marks the 50th anniv. of our birthday person's classic masterpiece A Love Supreme; come Nov. you'll be able to buy & hear every single note, cough & whatever from every foot of recording tape that was recorded in the sessions.
The Complete Masters notably includes a second-day session featuring Coltrane and his quartet (Elvin Jones, Jimmy Garrison, and McCoy Tyner) accompanied by Archie Shepp and Dr. Art Davis. The reportedly "long-lost session reels" are meant to give a full picture of how the album evolved and developed in the studio.

Here'a big mess of it, including live performance in some Francophone nation.
