John Coltrane (tenor sax) resumed his association with Rudy Van Gelder's Prestige label on a late March 1957 "all-star" session alongside Idrees Sulieman (trumpet), Webster Young (trumpet), Bobby Jaspar (tenor sax), Kenny Burrell (guitar), Paul Chambers (bass), Art Taylor (drums), and de facto arranger/songwriter Mal Waldron. This interesting blend of instrumentalists lives up to its potential as well as the equally intriguing Interplay for 2 Trumpets and 2 Tenors (1957)
The titular trumpets are played by Idrees Sulieman and Webster Young, while the other tenor sax player beside Coltrane is Bobby Jaspar. 192 kHz, 24-bit, 96 kHz, 24-bit PCM – Prestige Studio Masters. This album is a high-resolution digital transfer of material originating from an analogue recording.

Pain ensues when one is confronted with the ballad "Soul Eyes" which clocks in at a whopping 17:29. Pity that the four horns are woefully out of tune with each other for the head because some of the solos are quite nice. Producer and Prestige owner Bob Weinstock wasn't always a stickler for quality control and this track is a fine example.

Mal Waldron Plays Eric Satie is an album by American jazz pianist Mal Waldron playing compositions by Erik Satie recorded in 1983 and released by the Japanese Baybridge label. My Dear Family is an album by jazz pianist Mal Waldron recorded in 1993 and released on the Evidence label. It was first recorded on March 22, 1957, for the album Interplay for 2 Trumpets and 2 Tenors. One of the tenor saxophonists on that recording was John Coltrane, who brought the song back to attention by recording it in 1962 for his album Coltrane, when he had become more famous. This was only the second ever recording of the song, which has since become "part of the basic repertory of jazz performers" – a jazz standard.
Recorded on March 7, 1958, it was originally released on the New Jazz label as NJ 8276 in 1963, then reissued in 1967 on Prestige as PRLP 7532, with a different cover and retitled The Kenny Burrell Quintet With John Coltrane.
