For thirty-five years Ascension has stood as a monument - either as John Coltrane's supreme, ecstatic statement of his musical liberation from chord changes or as his abandonment of all jazz tradition. Here he has reached the summit.
Although the influence of other musicians is evident in his music, it stands apart, now as then, from everything else in jazz. It is of unprecedented force and feeling.
Original recordings produced by Bob Thiele. Recorded by Rudy Van Gelder. Recorded June 28, 1965 at Van Gelder Recording Studio, Englewood Cliffs, New Jersey.
