John Coltrane Quartet – What’s New? (1962)

From the album Ballads by John Coltrane, Recorded 1961 and 1962.

Critic Gene Lees stated that the quartet had never played the tunes before. “They arrived with music-store sheet music of the songs” and just before the recordings, they “would discuss each tune, write out copies of the changes they’d use, semi-rehearse for a half hour and then do it”. Each piece was recorded in one take, except for “All or Nothing at All” [source]

Personel: John Coltrane – tenor saxophone, soprano saxophone / McCoy Tyner – piano / Jimmy Garrison – bass / Elvin Jones – drums
