JOHN COLTRANE: Within & Without Miles, Live 1960 (Numbered 140g Clear Vinyl 2LP)


The Miles Davis Quintet’s 1960 European tour featuring John Coltrane marked the end of the most dynamic front line partnership since Dizzy Gillespie And Charlie Parker.

This edition features the Quintet’s complete April 8 1960 performance at Kongresshaus in Zurich Switzerland. Miles And Trane really stretched out on these tunes averaging about 14 minutes per song – superbly backed by Wynton Kelly – Paul Chambers & Jimmy Cobb.

John Coltrane formed his first quartet as a leader at New Yorks Jazz Gallery in May 1960. After a short trial with Steve Kuhn on piano, McCoy Tyner joined the group. Coltrane also began playing the soprano saxophone during his tenure at the Jazz Gallery. It features Tranes first recordings ever with McCoy Tyner.

Numbered first press of 500 copies.
