Interplay for 2 Trumpets and 2 Tenors is an album credited to The Prestige All Stars, consisting of John Coltrane, Bobby Jaspar, Idrees Sulieman, Webster Young, Mal Waldron, Kenny Burrell, Paul Chambers and Art Taylor.

Overview[edit]

Interplay for 2 Trumpets and 2 Tenors was released in 1957 on Prestige Records, catalogue 7112. The record features the first recording of pianist Mal Waldron's composition, "Soul Eyes", which went on to become a jazz standard.[2] Some CD reissues also include the bonus track "C.T.A." (James "Jimmy" Heath), originally issued on Taylor's Wailers, recorded the same day, with just Coltrane, Chambers, Taylor and pianist Red Garland.[3] The album would be later issued also as Interplay, a compilation credited to Coltrane alone, which also features tracks from other albums.
