  • John Coltrane Quartet featuring Eric Dolphy: So Many Things: The European Tour 1961

    The four discs on So Many Things find the band looking for some sweet spot between a groove the audience can latch onto and the experimentalism that shaped the early '60s period of Coltrane's career.

    John Coltrane had visited Europe in 1960 as a member of Miles Davis's band.
