John Coltrane at the 1/2 Note

The New York Times has a review of the soon to be released archival concert of John Coltrane's quartet live from the Half Note entitled Coltrane: Volatile, but Always in Control:

In the spring of 1965, John Coltrane's quartet played several gigs at the Half Note Club in Manhattan, some of which were recorded for WABC-FM radio. Tape traders have long known about them, and the music has circulated since the late 1960's, but generally not in complete form, and not sounding nearly as good as they do now.
