"... tailor-made for the hardcore Coltrane enthusiast, a special prize ... Coltrane completists, rejoice ..."
- Audiophile Audition

"... a key moment of transition, of personal as well as musical transformation ... captures that vast musical and moral change; the complete session documents it in action ... it’s a treasure, a joy and a revelation."
- The New Yorker

John Coltrane recorded Sun Ship in 1965, among the last sessions by the classic John Coltrane Quartet (pianist McCoy Tyner, bassist Jimmy Garrison and drummer Elvin Jones), marking the end of a year in which Coltrane arguably reached his creative peak. Sun Ship was not released until 1971, one of several Coltrane albums that came out after his death. When the original three-track masters were discovered, including previously unavailable alternate takes, the complete session was reissued for the first time with great sonic results, a major improvement on the existing LP mix.

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
