About this item

Tenor saxophonist John Coltrane's 1957 studio session in Hackensack, New Jersey produced all the material for the legendary album, Blue Train. The album marked the first time that Trane was given the opportunity to select his own sidemen for a date. He made effective use of his newfound freedom, enlisting the support of trumpeter Lee Morgan, trombonist Curtis Fuller, pianist Kenny Drew, bassist Paul Chambers and drummer Philly Joe Jones. When asked in a 1960 radio interview which was his favourite of all the albums he recorded up to that point, Coltrane was quick to reply, Blue Train.
