John Coltrane Quintet
So Many Things: The European Tour 1961

John Coltrane Quintet - So Many Things: The European Tour 1961

This album features highlights from John Coltrane, pianist McCoy Tyner, bassist Reggie Workman, drummer Elvin Jones, and multi-instrumentalist Eric Dolphy, playing over 30 concert appearances in under three weeks. The band crisscrossed the continent from France to Finland, taking its message to far larger crowds than in the US. These recordings have since acquired almost legendary status and have previously only been available in sporadic fashion, but for the first time ever, this new Acrobat release collates tapes made by the quintet in Paris, Copenhagen, Helsinki and Stockholm, creating an anthology of this short-lived band at its peak.
