John Coltrane "The Impulse! Albums: Volume Five" On Hip-O Select / Verve


Sign in to view read count
Saxophonist and composer John Coltrane died unexpectedly in July 1967, already a legend at the age of 40. Having recorded prolifically, Coltrane left behind in the Impulse Records vault a treasure trove of great music that demanded to be heard.

The John Coltrane Impulse! Albums Volume 5 set picks up where Volume 4 left off, collecting the next five Coltrane albums released posthumously, with each of them in their original configuration: Live in Seattle, Sun Ship, Transition, Infinity (with Alice Coltrane and Strings) and Live in Japan. Each contains superb performances that remain cherished by fans for more than 40 years.

The slip-cased collection contains the five albums on CD in individual jewel boxes, with each offering faithful reproduction of the original artwork. Each album has also been remastered for the first time in more than 15 years. This collection, The John Coltrane Impulse! Albums Volume 5, now joins the previous four volumes of Coltrane albums released on the renowned Impulse! Records label that are also available.
