The Mastery of John Coltrane, Vol. I: Feelin' Good is a compilation album by American saxophonist John Coltrane, the first of a series of four compilations released on Impulse! between 1978 and 1979, all sharing the same cover artwork designed by Stuart Kusher, Richard Germinaro and Vigon Nahas Vigon. It features pieces recorded in 1965, seven in studio and one live.[3] All the tracks were previously unissued in these mixes ("Joy" and "Living Space" having previously appeared with orchestral overdubs arranged by Alice Coltrane on the 1972 album Infinity) at the time of release.
