John Coltrane formed his first quartet as a leader at New York’s Jazz Gallery in May 1960. After a short trial with Steve Kuhn on piano, McCoy Tyner joined the group. Coltrane also began playing the soprano saxophone during his tenure at the Jazz Gallery. The previously unreleased set presented here was taped by an audience member during that gig. It features Trane’s first recordings ever with McCoy Tyler, as well as his first preserved notes on soprano sax. It also contains versions of tunes rarely recorded by Coltrane, like Liberia, The Night Has a Thousand Eyes, Summertime and “But Not For Me”, as well as Trane’s first issued version of I Can’t Get Started, a song he never taped in the studio, which he performs here on soprano.
