Impulse

Digitally remastered edition of this live album from the Jazz legend. Recorded live on Coltrane's only Japanese tour in July 1966 at two Tokyo venues, Shinjuku Kosei Nenkin Hall and Sankei Hall, it is taken from mono radio broadcasts. It is notable for the presence of alto saxophone, played both by Coltrane and Sanders. By this point in his career, Coltrane was firmly enmeshed into the avant-garde style of Jazz. Sanders, who was an innovator of Free Jazz, influenced Coltrane's playing through his technical use of over-blowing and fierce vibrations of the reed, and this record is remarkable for it's use of multiphonics.
