The Best Jazz on Bandcamp: May 2018 

Source: Bandcamp Daily. Lots of left-of-center stuff.

This month’s column is a book of spells. The month of May in Jazz is a lesson plan on the different ways music can be used to enchant, hypnotize, captivate, and beguile. Each album that follows is an immersive experience. It’s not a question of whether or not you’ll sink into one of these recordings—it’s a question of how many will have that effect.

Lost John Coltrane Recording To Be Released

Source: The New York Times.

On Friday, Impulse! will announce the June 29 release of “Both Directions at Once: The Lost Album,” a full set of material recorded by the quartet on a single day in March 1963, then eventually stashed away and lost. The family of Coltrane’s first wife, Juanita Naima Coltrane, recently discovered his personal copy of the recordings, which she had saved, and brought it to the label’s attention.
