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 "Spiritual," "My Favorite Things," and "Mr. P.C."

This was a live performance at the Konserthuset in Stockholm, Sweden. There were two concerts, one at 7:00pm and the second at 9:15pm. The recording is a live recording by Norman Granz. It was issued by Historical Performance LP.
