John Coltrane Ascension on LP
Trane is joined by Pharoah Sanders, Freddie Hubbard and four additional horn players for an explosion of fiery solos and free improvisation on this famous 1965 session. Recorded with three tenors (Coltrane, Sanders, Archie Shepp), two altos (Marion Brown, John Tchicai), two trumpet players (Freddie Hubbard, Dewey Johnson), two bassists (Art Davis, Jimmy Garrison), the lone McCoy Tyner on piano, and Elvin Jones on the drums, this large group is both relentless and soulful simultaneously.
