New - Coltrane, John - Live At The Village Vanguard (Acoustic Sound Series) - LP
John Coltrane's first official live album was recorded at the iconic Greenwich Village jazz club in NYC in November 1961 and released on the Impulse! label the following year. Produced by the great Bob Thiele the sterling three track set finds Trane flanked by Eric Dolphy on bass clarinet plus veteran sidemen McCoy Tyner on piano, Reggie Workman on bass, and Elvin Jones on drums. The second side of the LP is devoted to the immortal "Chasin' The Trane." This all-analog 180g vinyl LP reissue was mastered from the original analog tapes by Ryan K. Smith at Sterling Sound, pressed at QRP, and comes housed in a Stoughton tip-on gatefold jacket.
