John Coltrane and his classic quartet still have unissued music to offer 21st-century listeners.

Set for release Sept. 27, Blue World collects a batch of unheard takes—“Naima,” “Traneing In” and “Village Blues” among them—along with “Blue World,” a contrafact of “Out Of This World,” which was the opening track on the bandleader’s 1962 album Coltrane. The new album will be available digitally, on CD and LP.
