The Jazz Record Art Collective is proud to present a livestream performance featuring the Isaiah Spencer Quartet performing John Coltrane's "Both Directions at Once", released in 1963. The night will also feature live painting by Arthur Wright!
"Both Directions at Once was recorded in Van Gelder Studio in New Jersey on March 6, 1963...to cut down on storage space, Impulse! Records destroyed the master tape, and the recording was lost for decades. The seven tracks on Both Directions survived as a copy Coltrane gave to his first wife, Juanita Naima.Van Gelder made a separate copy for Coltrane to listen to at home. In 2005, after the Guernsey's auction house announced plans to sell Coltrane-related artefacts, the record company intervened to acquire the tapes. Coltrane's son Ravi and studio executive Ken Druker assembled the final album."
