John Coltrane — Blue Train (Blue Note Mono Remaster)
Blue Note Tone Poet Mono Remaster on 180-Gram Vinyl
On September 15, 1957, John Coltrane went into Rudy Van Gelder’s living room studio in Hackensack, NJ, and recorded his first great masterpiece: Blue Train. It would be the legendary saxophonist’s sole album as a leader for Blue Note, a locomotive five-track album fueled by the bluesy title track that featured a dynamic six-piece band with Lee Morgan on trumpet, Curtis Fuller on trombone, Kenny Drew on piano, Paul Chambers on bass, and Philly Joe Jones on drums. To mark the 65th anniversary of the album’s recording, Blue Train is released as part of Blue Note’s acclaimed Tone Poet Audiophile Vinyl Reissue Series, produced by Joe Harley, mastered by Kevin Gray from the original analog master tapes, pressed on 180-gram vinyl at RTI, and packaged in a deluxe gatefold tip-on jacket.
