Surprisingly high quality recordings surface over 60 years later and delight a new generation.

“Recently-rediscovered recordings capturing summer 1961 performances by jazz titan John Coltrane during his residency with a stellar line-up of musicians at New York’s Village Gate club.
The recordings, uncovered at the New York Public Library for the Performing Arts, were made by engineer Rich Alderson as part of a test of the Village Gate’s then-new sound system. The tapes seemed to have been lost, were found, but then disappeared again into Library’s vast sound archives.
Coltrane played his month-long Village Gate residency with a quintet featuring a revolving cast of musicians. The new album comprises 80 minutes of unheard music and provides a glimpse into the powerful but sadly all-too-short musical partnership between Coltrane and Dolphy, who died three years later.”
