Elvin Jones is the catalyst for this feeling. There’s no ding-ding-ga-ding on the cymbals, but a DAAAA-da-DAAAA that swings in a way no drummer has before or since. He’s a force of nature. Everything in Elvin’s time is tripletsand there are elements of his favorites (Philly Joe, Blakey, Max), but the elements are so deconstructed and redefined that it’s entirely his own invention. […]
It is aptly titled, since it’s not much different from A Love Supreme and contemporary works, where the freeness wasn’t taking control of Trane’s entire music, actually there’s this majestic balance of spiritual climaxes and more down-to-earth post bop with extreme talent. […]

Why this material wasn’t released at the time is puzzling. The eponymous opener is one Coltrane’s strongest performances. It is, curiously enough, followed up by a lovely track from a different recording session. On its own, “Dear Lord” is one of Coltrane’s best ballads. […]
