The year 1965 was a turning point in the life of John Coltrane. It was at this point that he crossed the line into the free jazz arena that he had been approaching since the early '60s. Coltrane's regular quartet - McCoy Tyner (piano), Jimmy Garrison (bass), and Elvin Jones (drums) - is expanded here with second drummer Rashied Ali (who assumed Jones' spot after this album) and saxophonist Pharoah Sanders.

The album was considered the "spiritual follow-up to A Love Supreme. It features Coltrane and Pharoah Sanders as soloists, both playing tenor saxophones. Much of the recording is avant-garde, featuring extensive passages in free rhythm and extended saxophone techniques such as honked and overblown notes, as well as multiphonics. This would be the last Coltrane recording with long-time partners drummer Elvin Jones and pianist McCoy Tyner

We all know John Coltrane, whether it be through Miles Davis' quintet and the Kind of Blue album, or his own legendary career as a solo jazz artist. The addition of tenor saxophonist Pharoah Sanders only furthered the ecstasy. Returning to the lineup again is Pharoah Sanders, McCoy Tyner and Elvin Jones, along with Jimmy Garrison on bass and Rashied Ali on drums. All of these musicians fulfilled their purpose, contributing to the seemingly amorphous nature of Coltrane's later period music.

This CD reissues what was arguably the finest of the John Coltrane-Pharoah Sanders collaborations

Audio CD, July 7, 1992. The album was only released in the 1970s. Although Trane's style is beyond A Love Supreme, it has not yet crossed the boundary to his full later style. Listen to the way his soloing on "Love" slowly ascends to an improvisation of pure sound, screaming atonally. These steps to a fully free style are only tentative, however. THis is also the last album recorded by the classic quartet that had faithfully served Trane (in one form or another) since about 1960
