Blue World, a never-before-heard recording by John Coltrane, will be released September 27 in CD, vinyl LP, and digital editions via Impulse!/UMe.

Recorded in June 1964, the album features Coltrane with his classic quartet of pianist McCoy Tyner, bassist Jimmy Garrison, and drummer Elvin Jones, who went into Van Gelder Studios in Englewood Cliffs, N.J., for this particular session with a virtually unprecedented brief: to record new versions of some of Coltrane’s most famous works, including “Naima,” “Village Blues,” and “Traneing In.”
