|John Coltrane chronology|
Coltrane Jazz is a 1961 album by jazz musician John Coltrane. It was the first album released by Atlantic Records after his debut for that label, Giant Steps. Several of the songs on this album are outtakes from the session that produced "Naima" from the earlier LP. On those songs, Coltrane is backed by Wynton Kelly, Paul Chambers and Jimmy Cobb from the Miles Davis sextet, of which Coltrane was still a member when the tracks were laid down (early 1960). "Village Blues", recorded several months later, marks the LP debut of Elvin Jones and McCoy Tyner with Coltrane.
Coltrane plays tenor saxophone throughout. There are a few recordings where Coltrane plays the alto saxophone, though that is something he rarely did after 1946. He may also have played the smaller instrument on his final Atlantic album, Olé Coltrane.
