Coltrane "Live" at the Village Vanguard is the tenth album by jazz musician John Coltrane and his first live album, released in 1962 on Impulse Records, catalogue A-10. It is the first album to feature the members of the classic quartet of himself with McCoy Tyner, Jimmy Garrison, and Elvin Jones. In contrast to his previous album for Impulse!, this one generated much turmoil among both critics and audience alike with its challenging music.

originally issued as 'Live at the Village Vanguard' (Impulse AS-10), originally issued on 'Impressions' (Impulse AS-42). Digitally remastered at MCA Music Media Studios, using 20-Bit Super Mapping. Comes in a 3-fold digipak, including a 20-page booklet. Rights Society: BIEM/MCPS.

This live recording captures John Coltrane at a point where his artistic development is about to take him in an entirely new direction. The addition of Eric Dolphy to this group was experimental and even controversial in jazz circles at the time but as soon as the band takes off together on Spiritual, the first number, the choice is justified. Coltrane's 1961 Village Vanguard engagement is legendary - both for the quality of the music and for the controversy it generated at the time. This reissue is the best option for those who want just one disc of recordings from that engagement; these are the 5 tunes from the 1961 Village Vanguard engagement released during Coltrane's lifetime.

John Coltrane's week at the Village Vanguard in 1961 resulted in a total of 22 recorded versions of nine songs, all of which have been released in the four-CD box The Complete 1961 Village Vanguard Recordings. This 1998 single CD has the five performances that the great saxophonist had agreed to have released during his lifetime: three numbers from the original Live at the Village Vanguard LP ("Spiritual," "Softly as in a Morning Sunrise," and "Chasin' the Trane") and two songs that appeared on Impressions (the title cut and "India").
