John Coltrane - Blue Note (Tone Poet Series) (1LP Vinyl)
One of the most beloved jazz albums of all time is getting the acclaimed Tone Poet audiophile vinyl reissue treatment.
On September 15, 1957, John Coltrane went into Rudy Van Gelder's living room studio in Hackensack, New Jersey and recorded his first great masterpiece: Blue Train. It would be the legendary saxophonist's sole album as a leader for Blue Note, a locomotive 5-track album fueled by the bluesy title track that featured a dynamic 6-piece band with Lee Morgan on trumpet, Curtis Fuller on trombone, Kenny Drew on piano, Paul Chambers on bass, and Philly Joe Jones on drums.
To mark the 65th anniversary of the album's recording, Blue Train will be released in 2 special editions as part of Blue Note's acclaimed Tone Poet Audiophile Vinyl Reissue Series. This is the 1-LP mono pressing of the original album.
The Tone Poet Vinyl Editions were produced by Joe Harley, mastered by Kevin Gray from the original analog master tapes, pressed on 180g vinyl at RTI, and packaged in deluxe gatefold tip-on jackets.
