Balls out riffing from Coltrane ably supported by Rashied Ali flailing away behind him. One of my favourite of his albums as it cuts back the spirituality and just gets down to kicking out the jams. Must have been an influence on the MC5 and The Stooges as this is the nearest Jazz ever came to the fury of good rock and roll. Listing to it through a broken speaker with adds a weird tremolo and it sounds even cooler. The drum grooves invent whole genres of dance music in a single fill. Ali may not have the finesse of Elvin Jones but he is prepared to follow Coltrane over the cliff edge and hang there running on the spot like Wile E. Coyote. I love many of Coltrane's ballads and more stately tracks but you can see how he needed to break out of the trap created for him by A Love Supreme. Mid tempo new age spiritual apathy as a soundtrack to yuppie dinner parties was his for the taking but instead he blasted into space. Basically if you like A Love Supreme and that is your peak Coltrane then this maybe not for you but if you want something with the freedom to constantly evolve and challenge you buy it.

There's a lot of Coltrane I like but I just can't seem to enjoy this release as much as his others. It doesn't seem to be as focused and that's maybe because there is just Coltrane with the Sax and Rashied Ali drum'n away. I think I'd have almost prefered Coltrane without the drums. I only really like the drums of Rashied when he goes solo for a bit. I think when it comes down to free-jazz it's still good to have a cast of at least 3, otherwise it just seems like to much of a "jam" to me. I still listen to this one however but it doesn't get much play.
