Concord Music Group will reissue a remastered and expanded edition of John Coltrane’s Afro Blue Impressions album on August 20. Enhanced by 24-bit remastering by Joe Tarantino, three bonus tracks, and new liner notes, the new reissue celebrates the 40th anniversary of Pablo Records, the jazz label founded by Norman Granz in 1973.

The music was recorded live in Stockholm and Berlin in late 1963 (October and November, respectively) but not released until 1977, when Pablo issued it as a double-LP.
