‘Lost’ John Coltrane Album Set For Release

An album of previously lost John Coltrane recordings from 1963 will be released on June 29. Impulse! Records will issue Both Directions At Once: The Lost Album featuring the previously unheard “Untitled Original 11383,” which is available now.

Coltrane played soprano saxophone during a one-day recording session in March 1963 at legendary producer Rudy Van Gelder’s studio in Englewood Cliffs, New Jersey. Coltrane was accompanied by his “classic quartet,” comprised of pianist McCoy Tyner, drummer Elvin Jones and bassist Jimmy Garrison. Tapes of the session were then misplaced but Coltrane’s personal copy was recently found by his first wife, Juanita Naima Coltrane.

A seven track standard edition and 14 track deluxe edition of Both Directions At Once: The Lost Album also include the previously unheard “Untitled Original 11386.” Watch a visualizer for “Untitled Original 11383” below:
