John Coltrane - Sun Ship - Impulse! FR 1971 1st press NM/VG+

Recorded in august 1965, Sun Ship is the last recording of Coltrane's historic quartet before being joined by Pharoah Sanders and Rashied Ali and, above all, before its outright dissolution after the departure of Elvin Jones and McCoy Tyner end 1965. This recording is therefore historical, as well as being fascinating. Coltrane has already begun his free music transformation but does not neglect lyricism and this latent spirituality which floods its solos. To note a long and sublime solo of Jimmy Garrison on the double bass on "Ascent".  Cover is EX.
