Recorded between 1967 and 1969, this album – The Procrastinator – was only issued as a double album in 1978. Considering the names involved it’s hard to understand why that happened.

The track and the album share the title Blue Train, I keep the vinyl album and the CD in a safe place, it’s John Coltrane’s only album for Blue Note, the sextet plays hardbop at its best, it was 1957, a great year for jazz!
