Talking Jazz with Daniel Rorke

Chances are decent that if you are reading this on the Jazz Ireland website, you have already heard about the discovery, and pending release, of seven lost tracks recorded by John Coltrane's "classic quartet". Phrases like "a lost treasure" and "a revelation", such as have been used in newspapers and magazines to describe the find, are not hyperbole.

Simply, it is just objectively true to claim that this is the most important lost, and subsequently unearthed, Jazz recording in the history of the music.

This snapshot of the iconic quartet of Coltrane on tenor and soprano saxophone, pianist McCoy Tyner, bassist Jimmy Garrison and Elvin Jones-possibly the most important drummer in the lineage of Jazz percussion-was  tracked during a busy period for the group. The band had a week’s engagement at Birdland over the same period, and the following day would return the the studio in Englewood Cliffs, New Jersey, to record the album John Coltrane and Johnny Hartman. McCoy Tyner has recorded Nights of Ballads and Blues just two days previously. These guys were living in the music.
