|John Coltrane Offering Live at Temple University Limited Deluxe 180gram Vinyl 2LP Set
'Offering: Live At Temple University' documents a legendary concert by John Coltrane at Temple University in his hometown, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, on November 11, 1966, six weeks after his fortieth birthday and nine months before his untimely death.
Now available in a deluxe double 180g vinyl set, 'Offering' incorporates a look that replicates the graphic identity of Impulse! Records, Coltrane's exclusive label from 1961 until the end of his life. This is the first officially sanctioned release of an undiscovered, complete Coltrane performance since 2005.
It captures Coltrane in exemplary form, navigating the language he had developed during the last phase of his musical path with passion and pellucid logic. Operating at equivalent levels of invention and energy are three members of his working quintet of one year's standing, his wife, Alice Coltrane, on piano; Pharoah Sanders on reeds and flute; and Rashied Ali on drums.
