Session Details: 

The John Coltrane Reference book notes on which tracks Coltrane plays the tenor and on which he plays the soprano. Lord simply notes that Coltrane played both during this session, but does not provide any specificity. Coltrane plays both soprano and tenor on "Cousin Mary."

This was a live performance at the Auditorium Maximum in Freie Universitat in Berlin, West Germany. The concert began at 8:00pm.
