Introduction 0:31
“We’re hear earlier, and we’re here bright. Miles Davis bright, through the Mutual Network. A salute to Miles Davis and the All-Stars. Let’s run down the line-up briefly. Miles Davis, trumpet; Cannonball Adderley, alto; John Coltrane, tenor; Paul Chambers, bass, Red Garland, piano; Jimmy Cobb, drums. That opener was a Miles Davis original, ‘Sid’s Ahead’. Now ‘Bye Bye Blackbird’…”

Introduction 0:24
“Now that blackbird was flyin’ waaay out there. Home base, though, was the Spotlite, the House That Jazz Built, Jazz Limited, in Washington DC. Motivating power, Miles Davis and the All-Stars. We have time, so we’ll go right into a Thelonious Monk original, ‘Straight, No Chaser’…”

  4. Two Bass Hit (incomplete) (Lewis-Gillespie) :46


Note: As with apparently all sources, Track 16 is incomplete. However, this recording seems to be even more incomplete than most discographies indicate, ending before the broadcast announcer’s voiceover. It sounds like the CD that was the source for these recordings began skipping, and the track ends prematurely. This version also does not include the radio introduction, that precedes some sources of Track 13.

Not the most complete recording available. Missing (spoken) intro to Four and end of Two Bass Hit.

Torrent #324012 John Coltrane Quartet,A love Supreme Second Movement First live Execution,SOUND IMPROVED!!!, September 18, 1964

below notes from the 2 older torrents :


While listening to this concert I discovered that there where still some improvement that
could be made on the sound.

In particular I cleaned many diginoises in the bass solo and in the first 2 tracks
Not so many in the last one.

In the bass solo I also used Audacity ‘Low pass filter’ to reduce tape noise
track 14 is the same solo without ‘low pass filter’.

upgrade of the following torrent already posted by myself back in 2008:

Torrent #182951 John Coltrane4tet, ALove Supreme Resolution 1st live Execution,1964 Aug.18

Original notes of my torrent :
After some 18 hours of work I can offer to you this very rare (to me a premiere) version of RESOLUTION,
the second movement of A Love Supreme, the first live known to exist to my knowledge.

The original Tape (you’ll find it as Track02) was very noisy and needed a lot of volume adjustment.

The Bass solo is divided into 2 parts because it seems to come from to different sources.
The first part was almost inaudible and I had to pump up the volume to make it listenable (but almost without
ambiance noises )
The second part was pretty much louder and with a lot of noises as if the taper moved to a better place
to record the bass (it seems to me that there might be some music missing here in between).

Hope you all enjoy

Thanks to Peter losin for the original CD

Now we can listen to the musicians !!!

I wait for your opinion but the only Trane solo I’m sure of is
in Track 1 from 2’30 to 5’30.

John Coltrane tenor sax
Joe Henderson tenor sax
Joe Brazil alto sax
Unknown Ten on track 01
Sonny ‘Red’ Kyner alto sax
Hugh Lawson piano
Erni Farrow bass
Roy Brooks drums

Private tape recorded by Joe Brazil

  1. Untitled blues jam, ending with Now’s the Time (19:41)
  2. Woody’n You (8:10)
  3. Paul’s Pal (13:12)
  4. Sweet Georgia Brown (12:34)

The coltrane reference provides the following analysis of the contents

After each tune there are a few seconds of talking and practising;
on 1 solos are:
Sonny red Kyner (alto)
Probably Joe Brazil
Donald Towns (Tr)
Unknown Ten
Joe Henderson

on 2 Coltrane does not solo;
on 3 Joe Henderson solos first, followed by Coltrane and
on 4 Coltrane solos first followed by Henderson, and it is at a very fast tempo.

Joe Henderson found a copy of this tape in his basement in his house
in San Francisco on September 28, 1991, the day Miles Davis died.
There’s a pic of Joe H with the cassette tape of this jam in Fuji.

From an ACETATE SOUND CLEANED (there were a lot of clicks )

New find: live Miles sextet with Coltrane in SF in March, 1960 right before the legendary quintet Europe tour!
Miles, Coltrane, Buddy Mongomery (vbs), Wynton Kelly, Paul Chambers, Jimmy Cobb Check it out:

Miles hired Buddy Montgomery for the sextet when Cannonball Adderley left.
The plan was to take him on the Europe tour as well, but Buddy Montgomery was apparently afraid of flying.
This would seem to be the only known recording of the sextet with Montgomery.
