“A ninety-minute session of sustained intensity: experimental, frenzied at times, and deeply spiritual… Coltrane was pointing the way forward for generations of players to come, pushing the music to exhilarating, spiritual heights that caught most by surprise. In 1966, that wasn’t what jazz performances were about—not yet.”
