• 1. Part I
  • 2. Part II

Landmark free jazz album! An essential classic for any fan of 'new thing' improvisation! John Coltrane was one of the greatest player/composers the world has ever known and this is one of his most adventurous recordings! Mammoth, large scale big band session featuring a host of key avant/deep jazz luminaries such as Alber Ayler, Marion Brown, John Tchicai, Pharoah Sanders and Archie Shepp! This CD features both editions! Intense, extreme, transcendant music unlike anything else! Highly recommended!
