Coltrane's Live at Birdland (with his incredibly fiery visceral quartet which included Elvin Jones bashing the drums, Mcoy Tyner tickling the ivories and Jimmy Garrison plucking the strings) is a seminal live jazz album... it includes a wondrous version of Mongo Santamaria's Afro Blue..curiously enough it credits Coltrane for the tune...wonder if that mistake was corrected... this is of course the original Impulse Stereo A-50 LP cover. Highly recommended stuff!
