This session was originally released in 1963 on Prestige Records, but was credited to the "Prestige All Stars." As Coltrane's fame grew during the 1960s after he had stopped recording for Prestige, the record company assembled and reissued varied Coltrane recordings with his name prominently displayed, though in many cases, like on Dakar, he had originally been a sideman. However, issuing the album as if it were originally led by Coltrane was later deemed appropriate given that his "urgent" performances were often the most compelling. With John Coltrane on tenor saxophone, Cecil Payne and Pepper Adams on baritone sax, Mal Waldron on piano, Doug Watkins on bass & Art Taylor on drums.
New/sealed on Prestige/OJC.
