OK. I’ve finished The Planets, and so I’m listening, once again for the 30th time, to John Coltrane’s closely related Interstellar Space album, with just himself and Rashied Ali on drums. I love Coltrane, of course, as who doesn’t? Black Pearls, A Love Supreme, Ascension, Giant Steps, My Favorite Things, Ballads, they’re all among my favorite jazz albums. But Interstellar Space I admit I have trouble figuring out. Mars and Venus should be polar opposites, but I have trouble finding much variety of mood or method on this CD. What am I missing? Postclassic is possibly not the right venue, but can anyone tell me how to listen to this last Coltrane disc (1967) and find it as wonderful as his earlier work?
