    This is incredibly visual for me. It's my favorite by Coltrane.

    I love it when versions of jazz tunes go on past the time it says they take up on the Last.fm player!

    I have this unnamed version with a stringed instrument (I reckon it's a guitar) playing the lead, 7:19 in length. Wish I knew the author of the interpretation.

    The Newport '63 version is so intense, one of my favorites. There are parts where just Coltrane and Roy Haynes are playing, going absolutely nuts and just pushing it to the limit. absolutely amazing.

    When composing this tune Coltrane maybe was inspired by a chapter of the book "Mysticism of sound and music" - the chapter is titled "Impressions" - the book is wrtten by Hazrat Inayat Khan - Sufi master

    I'v read all the Coltrane liner ntoes and what they say about what Coltrane "was trying to do/ trying to accomplish." But when I listen to the music, it is Tyner that is most in line with that description. My vote for all-time greatest may be cast.

    for me it was his blue trane album, the first jazz i heard, was the rainy monsoons in bombay, green all around, cool breeze and coltrane

    I've only heard the version off the album for which it is the title track, but holy crap. This is amazing. Coltrane is fantastic.
