John Coltrane: Crescent (Acoustic Sounds) Test Pressing

John Coltrane

Released in 1964, Crescent is one of John Coltrane's finest albums, featuring the talents of McCoy Tyner, Jimmy Garrison and Elvin Jones. That year, Coltrane spent the least amount of time in the recording studio of his entire solo career. On April 27, ‘Trane, along with Tyner, Garrison and Jones went to the familiar surroundings of Rudy Van Gelder's Englewood Cliff's studio to begin work on the album that came to be called, Crescent. Test pressings are used to verify the quality of a vinyl release before it is officially pressed.
