Session Details: 

Both The John Coltrane Reference book and Lord have very detailed records of this session, however, only the Reference book source provides the extensive track playtimes of all rehearsal, false start, and incomplete performances. The Reference book also includes a few brief rehearsal tracks that Lord does not include. These tracks are very brief, under twenty seconds, include only a few of the personnel, and do not have a matrix number (like the other tracks do). We have chosen to include these additional tracks in the interest of inclusivity.
