Coltrane, John (1926 – 1967)

A rare signed copy of the album Someday My Prince Will Come by John Coltrane. Signed neatly on the back cover in black ballpoint. In generally fine condition, with some light soiling and staining, and an ownership notation to upper left corner. The record is included.

Coltrane departed the Miles Davis Quintet to form his own quartet in the summer of 1960, but not before making two cameo appearances on Miles Davis’s Someday My Prince Will Come, adding solos on the title track and on ‘Teo,’ a song likely inspired by producer and saxophonist Teo Macero. Coltrane’s solo on the title track is part of jazz folklore — the story goes that Coltrane’s incredible and impromptu solo occurred when he walked in on the recording session purely by chance.
