Autographed copy of the album Coltrane, released on Impulse! Records in 1962, signed on the interior of the gatefold cover by John Coltrane and drummer Elvin Jones, apparently at the nightclub Shelly's Manne-Hole on North Cahuenga Boulevard in Los Angeles. In worn condition, the interior also bears an ownership signature of one "Carl," dated [19]63, and it was he who was perhaps also responsible for the various ink notations around the song listings, identifying tempos ("3/4 medium tempo") etc. The edges and interior seam of the gatefold are split and with old tape affixed around them, evident also on the front and back of the album.  The record is untested but also exhibits signs of extensive wear and it should be noted the album is sold for the collectible nature of the signatures only. Despite the litany of apparent flaws, this well worn copy of Coltrane was evidently loved and indeed carries an unmistakable air of cool nostalgia about it, presenting as an attractive relic of an important moment in the history of jazz.  Read More...
