John Coltrane - The Ascension (1965)

This is the kind of hyper-complex jazz that aficionados love because they can identify all the modal shifts and chromatic crescendos and whatever. You probably won't be able to hear those though. Instead you'll hear a forty minutes of free jazz noodling punctuated by some of the best solos ever. Worth wading through all the arcane jazz waffle for some of the riffs Coltrane spits out.

    This has nothing to do with John Coltrane, but you should check this album out and repost it.

    A few years old but criminally unnoticed.
