John Coltrane - Newport '63

Three of the four lengthy performances on Newport '63 are taken from one of the John Coltrane Quartet's greatest performances : the 1963 Newport Jazz Festival. With pianist McCoy Tyner, bassist Jimmy Garrison and drummer Roy Haynes (filling in for an absent Elvin Jones), Coltrane performs what is arguably his greatest version of "My Favorite Things" along with memorable renditions of "Impressions" and "I Want to Talk About You." Two of those selections originally appeared on the LP Selflessness while "Impressions" was included in a later collection. This set is rounded out by "Chasin' Another Trane," the only recording from 'Trane's famous November 1961 engagement at the Village Vanguard that had Roy Haynes sitting in for Elvin Jones ; altoist Eric Dolphy is also heard from on that heated selection.
