John Coltrane’s unreleased album Blue World gets September release date

John Coltrane fans are in for a treat this fall. Blue World is the new unreleased album from the jazz legend. Firstly, the release will be out on September 27, 2019. The album is enclosed with eight previously unheard versions of John Coltrane’s most classic pieces.

Secondly, the recordings of Blue World took place in 1964. These sessions were possible with the help of Coltrane’s Classic Quartet. Jimmy Garrison, Elvin Jones, and McCoy Tyne were part of this Classic Quartet. Thus the album manages to include various takes of songs. Such as “Village Blues” and “Naima”. In fact, all the tracks were captured with 1/4″ analog mono tape. Also at this time, the track “Blue World” is available to listen. Hear it below.

Blue World

It is important to realize, the material of Blue World originally is a commission by Gilles Groulx a filmmaker. Groulx wanted to use the music in his romantic film, “Le chat dans le sac” (The Cat in the Bag). In any event, only 10 minutes of the entire recording was used in his movie. What’s more, the eight recordings featured on the lost album were reportedly recorded in one day. During their time at New Jersey’s Van Gelder Studios back on June 24th, 1964. The album reached 33-minutes in total runtime. Thereafter, for many years it went uncataloged by Coltrane enthusiasts and jazz fanatics. To explain, this is due to the session going unnoted in the studio’s recording logs.

In conclusion, the Blue World album will give fans the opportunity to listen to the other selections for the first time. Blue World is mastered by Kevin Reeves. Also, head here for to pre-order and check out the artwork and tracklist below.
