Session Details: 

This session is lead by Cecil Taylor and features John Coltrane - it is the only known recording featuring both artists. At this session, the album "Stereo Drive" (stereo version, released 1959) is recorded for United Artists Records. It was also issued with the title "Hard Driving Jazz" (mono version) and much later re-issued with Coltrane's name as "Coltrane Time" (1963), with Blue Note Records. This information is derived from the sources noted in this session as well as from the Wikipedia page on the "Stereo Drive" album (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stereo_Drive).
