Music today has been the John Coltrane Quartet – Ballads (1963). Jazz buffs will know it featured Coltrane, McCoy Tyner on piano, Jimmy Garrison on bass, Elvin Jones on drums and Reggie Workman on bass on one track. All but one song were recorded in one take. The band didn’t know the songs, they looked at the music, discussed the songs, worked out what changes they would make to the sheet music and laid down the tracks.
