More Info:

180-Gram Colored Vinyl Edition - *(*) AllMusic. In 1960, and after recording the music to be issued on The Avant Garde (with Don Cherry), Coltrane's Sound and the all-time classic My Favorite Things, he embarked on the making of Coltrane Plays the Blues, a thematic LP consisting of six tunes based on the blues. "Blues for Bechet", one of the two pieces on this album on which Trane plays the soprano sax, is obviously dedicated to the jazzman who brought this instrument to jazz: Sidney Bechet. Pianist McCoy Tyner sits out on "Blues to Bechet" and both takes of "Blues to You", reducing the band to a trio on these tracks. THE COMPLETE LP + 2 BONUS TRACKS - 180-GRAM BLUE COLORED VINYL -Contains new specially prepared liner notes by Penguin Guide to Jazz's writer BRIAN MORTON and by Paris' prestigious JAZZ MAGAZINE.
