John Coltrane – Coltrane Plays The Blues
Features McCoy Tyner, Steve Davis and Elvin Jones.
Recorded in 1960 during the My Favorite Things sessions, Coltrane Plays The Blues features ‘Blues To Bechet,’ ‘Blues To Elvin’ and ‘Blues To You’ in addition to three other tracks.
The album was assembled after Coltrane had stopped recording for Atlantic and was under contract to Impulse Records.
Like Prestige Records before them, as Coltrane’s fame grew during the 1960s, Atlantic used unissued recordings and released them without either Coltrane’s input or approval.
