John coltrane sun ship


By the end of 1959, Coltrane had recorded what would be his Atlantic Records debut, Giant Steps, released in early 1960. The album, consisting entirely of Coltrane compositions, in a sense marked his real debut as a leading jazz performer, even though the 33-year-old musician had released three previous solo albums and made numerous other recordings. His next Atlantic album, Coltrane Jazz, was mostly recorded in November and December 1959 and released in February 1961. In April 1960, he finally left the Davis band and formally launched his solo career, beginning an engagement at the Jazz Gallery in New York, accompanied by pianist Steve Kuhn (soon replaced by McCoy Tyner), bassist Steve Davis, and drummer Pete La Roca (later replaced by Billy Higgins and then Elvin Jones). During this period, he increasingly played soprano saxophone as well as tenor.

Sessions Records was a label that sold records through radio and television advertisements. They were the record label arm of Audio Research, Incorporated, located in the greater Chicago area. Early albums had an address of Hillside, Illinois, followed by Lombard, Illinois, Lisle, Illinois, and Downer's Grove, Illinois. By the late 1980s, Sessions had moved to 5050 List Drive in Colorado Springs, Colorado. President of Sessions Records, and listed on some discs as the reissue producer, was John Werling.

Sessions usually had two or three record sets pressed by the Special Products divisions of the major labels (Columbia, RCA, Warner Brothers, MCA), so the quality of the vinyl was excellent. Although most of the contents of the albums was standard reissue fare, occasionally they would come up with a rare stereo find such as the stereo version of "You'll Lose a Good Thing" by Barbara Lynn on For Ladies Only .

In addition to reissuing oldies albums, the early 1980s brought a series of albums by the Smurfs, usually reissues of Canadian albums, as well as the reissue of the Canadian Raccoons on Ice , narrated by Rich Little.

Sessions had their own series, the ARI-1000 series (ARI derived from Audio Research, Inc.), but many albums just used the numbers of the Special Products companies that pressed them.

Sessions began issuing CDs in the late 1980s. By about 1993, they discontinued issuing albums.


Early Sessions labels had the logo on top without other graphics. Labels were printed in various colors, . red, black, light blue, yellow. A Canadian Sessions label is yellow with the same design (far left). The ARI-5000 series used a label with a blue field on the bottom, and a sunburst graphic on top. By the 1980s, the Sessions label was brown, with the label name in yellow across the middle of the label. Later in the 1980s, a grey label with the label name in red above the center hole was used. Sessions albums pressed by Capitol Special Markets in the 1970s used the usual tan CSM label. In the 1980s, the Capitol Special Markets label shifted to a yellow design with the Capitol Tower in the background. Sessions albums pressed by Columbia Special Products used the usual CSP red label. RCA Special Products pressings of Sessions albums before 1974 used the tan RCA label. In 1974, the RCA Special Products label switched to blue, and by 1977, to black. Warner Special Products pressings of Sessions albums had the usual Warner Special Products label scheme. Disc 1 in a set had a red band around the edge of the label, disc 2 a yellow band, disc 3 a blue band, disc 4 a green band, disc 5 a purple band, etc.

During the later part of 1957 Coltrane worked with Thelonious Monk at New York’s Five Spot Café , and played in Monk's quartet (July–December 1957), but, owing to contractual conflicts, took part in only one official studio recording session with this group. Coltrane recorded many albums for Prestige under his own name at this time, but Monk refused to record for his old label. [ citation needed ] A private recording made by Juanita Naima Coltrane of a 1958 reunion of the group was issued by Blue Note Records as Live at the Five Spot—Discovery! in 1993. A high quality tape of a concert given by this quartet in November 1957 was also found later, and was released by Blue Note in 2005. Recorded by Voice of America , the performances confirm the group's reputation, and the resulting album, Thelonious Monk Quartet with John Coltrane at Carnegie Hall , is widely acclaimed. [6]
