Wow, I'm amazed. I knew something good was in store due to Coltrane's reputation. However, when I hit play, the sound completely took over me. This is the best jazz record I've heard so far. Every song is 7 to 10 minutes of pure chemistry, passion and genius. Although lengthy, it NEVER gets tiring. These compositions sound incredibly pleasant to the ear while also showcasing rarely matched prowess. If you wanna get into jazz, highly recommend this as a gateway.
