When John Coltrane played the Pennsylvania State University on January 19, 1963, he was about a year into his stint as leader of what's been canonized as his 'classic' quartet.

With McCoy Tyner on piano, Jimmy Garrison on bass, and Elvin Jones on drums, a broadcast of performances from this concert on WDFM presented almost 70 minutes of imaginative improvisation.

Besides Coltrane's own 'Mr. P.C.', the program was dominated by extended reinventions of popular standards, including 'My Favorite Things' and a 25-minute version of 'Bye Bye Blackbird'.


1. Bye Bye Blackbird
2. The Inch Worm
3. Every Time We Say Goodbye
4. Mr. P.C.
5. I Want to Talk About You
