JOHN COLTRANE STATED IN A 1960 RADIO INTERVIEW THAT THE ALBUM BLUE TRAIN WAS HIS FAVORITE RECORDING FROM HIS DISCOGRAPHY.

This release includes the complete album Blue Train, plus four bonus tracks showcasing Coltrane's genius on several sessions from the same period and with similar personnel.

Includes 16-page comprehensive booklet! "John was taking music another direction. You know, it wasn't just rhythm changes anymore, it was completely different. I made a comment on a record date: 'John, you put this music on us on a moment's notice. We got three hours to rehearse this music and we're gonna record?' And that became the title of the song. He wrote "Moment's Notice." It wasn't trombone-friendly at the time, and I walked up to him and told him once 'John, I'm uncomfortable, you know.' He said, 'Oh, you played it. I heard you, the way you played it.'" - Curtis Fuller
