Track Notes

Warm - up
Includes conversation by the musicians in the background (first few seconds);
a few piano notes are sounded at one point (probably to assist in tuning),
though there's no piano on the subsequent performance.

*2 Last Blues

Coltrane begins playing the opening theme out of his warm-up.
The theme seems to be related to the theme of �The Last Blues� (see session 65�0610),
though the body of the tune is an extended improvisation that doesn't particularly resemble �The Last Blues.�
Coltrane solos until about 11:48;
Haynes then solos until about 13:51;
Dolphy then solos until the tape cuts off.

Session Note


Personnel identified based on aural evidence.
The playing is similar to other recordings from this period with Roy Haynes,
so we think it was probably recorded between April and July 1963 (not confirmed);
the venue and location are unknown. This may have been a rehearsal�no audience noise is audible.
