1963: New Directions CD

In the brief, bright arc that is the career of John Coltrane, 1963 marks a point of transition between past jazz masterpieces and future work, which would transcend the boundaries of the music itself.  That year's recorded output shows movement in many directions: a look back at the past, continued examination of a familiar repertoire, exploration of more traditional formats and a look forward at compositions and approaches that would further extend the reach of jazz.
This set includes Impulse! recordings from 1963 including the recently released Both Directions At Once: The Lost Album, which was recorded by Coltrane’s Classic Quartet on March 6, 1963. The following day, they recorded standards with singer Johnny Hartmann, which was released that year and was a great commercial success for Coltrane. Other recordings come from Live at Newport ’63 and works from Dear Old Stockholm that were recorded in 1963. Also included are recordings from Live at Birdland
