5.0 out of 5 stars Don't miss this Trane...., September 28, 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: Interstellar Space (Audio CD)
I don't even know how to describe this album. I still don't feel like I should be writing a review for it because I still don't feel like I have gained everything I could from it at this point. This album holds a wealth of so many treasures on it, I sincerely think that you could listen to it thousands of times and gain something new each time. This album is like having a job, the more you put into it, the more you get from it and vice versa. This album isn't going to hand itself to you. You have to subconsiously want to gain something from it. Many will call it noise or racket, true, a tenor saxophone and drums don't seem to make the most complimentary pair to begin with and on this album, Rashied Ali and John Coltrane blast their instruments out of any sterotypical roles they may have had. Ali uses his drumset as more of a tonal palette than a rhythmic timekeeper and Coltrane completely destroys the notion of what a jazz saxophonist "should" play. This was one of the last recordings Coltrane ever made and it is definitely one of his finest. It may seem like atonal noise the first, second, third, fourth, fifth, sixth and maybe even tenth listen, but give it time, patience and perseverence and this recording will give you more than you could ever imagine.
