Wilson & Alroy’s Record Reviews
His last authorized release is curiously calmand the recordings have an eerie beauty unlike his other late work (title track). Even the three-and-a-half-minute “Ogunde” changes mood after a furious startand winds down to a misty piano-led coda. […]

hprill @ RateYourMusic
Expression is one of the few Coltrane albums that defy an easy categorization — it’s not even clear to what degree it’s undecisive or deliberately tentative. […]

Even in what must have been a time of tremendous pain and darkness, Coltrane’s single-minded quest for understanding and transcendence took him to places of new exploration and light. […]
