On This Day in Jazz History
Prestige signs Coltrane to his first record contract. His first record under his own name is simply entitled Coltrane
(not to be confused with the Impulse! recording of the same title which came later). Subsequent Prestige releases from 1957 include Dakar, Lush Life, and Traneing In,
all reissued by OJC. Coltrane also records the critically renowned Blue Train
for Blue Note.
