Limited Edition Clear Vinyl LP!

Sowing Records presents The Ray Draper Quintet featuring John Coltrane's self-titled album, originally released in 1958. Recorded in 1957 by Rudy Van Gelder and released in the same year on the New Jazz label, this was a major statement from Ray Draper, who besides working with the likes of Max Roach, Jackie McLean, and Donald Byrd, has been one of the few tuba players who have made a name as bandleader. In particular, this quintet date was a courageous step, with Draper sharing the frontline with John Coltrane. In fact, the two gave voice to a very unusual combination of tuba and tenor sax. An unprecedented instrumental choice backed here by a tight dynamic rhythm section featuring Gil Coggins (piano), Spanky DeBrest (bass), and Larry Ritchie (drums). Clear vinyl.
