Special Vinyl Reissue!

Originally recorded in 1962, these are two European concert performances with John Coltrane’s classic quartet—pianist McCoy Tyner, bassist Jimmy Garrison and drummer Elvin Jones backed up by the great saxophonist. With a brief yet incredibly strong playlist, Bye Bye Blackbird allows listeners to hear Coltrane delving deep inside two pieces: "Bye Bye Blackbird" and "Traneing In." In these extended versions, the horn player does everything possible with chord structures, and then moves into the impossible, resulting in some of the most powerful Coltrane tenor saxophone on record.

"It's too facile to call any performance the "greatest" when titling an album; in short, it smacks of a blurb. But this time is the exception: I submit that Coltrane's "Traneing In" is one of the finest and most inspired examples of his talents ever recorded. Certainly for anyone encountering Coltrane for the first time, this album should serve admirably as a demonstration of his greatness." -Norman Granz

"...the quality is quite high...Well recorded, this European concert (of uncertain origin) is worth hearing, particularly by Coltrane collectors who already have his more essential recordings." -Scott Yanow,
