But the recordings from that March afternoon session never saw the light of day — until now. Both Directions at Once: The Lost Album is being released today but you can hear it in its entirety at 3pm pacific on The Drive (as well as classic Coltrane cuts ALL DAY). Ron Dhanifu will have saxophonist Robert Dove and other special guests. John Coltrane Day, only Jazz 88.3.
