John Coltrane, "Africa/Brass", Impulse! 12" LP, A-6, Mono First Pressing, 1961, SIGNED By John Coltrane at the top right of the gate fold " Thank you, John Coltrane"; Coltrane's first recording for the fledgling Impulse! record company featured more than twenty musicians, with a large brass ensemble accompanying Coltrane's quartet, a significant departure from anything he had previously recorded. From the collection of Finnish musician, Jorma Lahtinen, who has printed his name at the top margin of the left gate fold (and again with his first name only at the top edge of the rear cover) with a date of 1961, the year in which Coltrane performed in Helsinki, Finland on Wednesday, November 22, during an extensive European Tour. John Coltrane's signature is very scarce in any form and highly sought after by collectors. A COA from noted music authenticator, Roger Epperson, accompanies the piece, as well as our personal LOA, without time limit. The handsome gate fold album cover is very good++, seams are tight, touch of laminate wear at the spine and bottom edge of the rear cover, light rubbing and loss to the corners, tiny interior closed tear to the gate fold hinge; the playing surface is very good+, bright luster, with a few scuffs and minor scratches. The autograph is fine in blue ink without loss or fading. A rare piece of signed jazz ephemera in collectible condition. J2208
