By that point, Coltrane had lung cancer, but was still making significant strides in his career. The recording of the concert had never been available; until now. NPR’s Fresh Air jazz critic Kevin Whitehead reviews this latest album, and compares it to some of Coltrane’s earlier works. Listen to music samples and Whitehead’s review below.
