Session Details: 

The John Coltrane Reference book provides a lot of specificity that is otherwise missing in Lord. Whereas Lord notes that Coltrane is on both tenor and soprano, and Dolphy on bass-clarinet and alto saxophone, the book source specifies which of these two instruments is played on each track.

Coltrane plays both tenor and soprano on the "Spiritual" track.

The book source also specifies that the Village Vanguard is located at 7th Avenue, 11th St., borough of Manhattan.
