Interstellar Space is a studio album by American jazz saxophonist John Coltrane. It was recorded in 1967, the year of his death, and released by Impulse! Records in September 1974. Piano and bass were becoming residual by the last days of Coltrane's quartet; you braced yourself for the moment he abandoned any pretext of an underlying harmony and went mano a mano with Elvin Jones. These duets with Rashied Ali start there-and the spare compositional guidelines only up the intensity.
The original four pieces ("Mars," "Venus," "Jupiter" and "Saturn") are joined by "Leo" and "Jupiter Variation.

But it's the tight playing and the remnants of melody that give Coltrane's only duo recording its unique character. Now this sounds like some completely random-sounding free jazz album (like Sun Ra’s Heliocentric Worlds) you have to listen to two years straight to even get a notion of what’s going on, right" In the harsh reality of our world though, this is pretty much the exact opposite of random. And it’s a unique chance to hear and actually understand free-form interplay.
John Coltrane’s ‘Interstellar Space’ at 50: Legacy of a Free-Jazz Masterpiece. Saxophonist’s groundbreaking duo LP summed up his cosmic quest, influencing generations of jazz and rock seekers – from Nels Cline to Jack DeJohnette. Read how 'Interstellar Space,' John Coltrane's bold duo LP with drummer Rashied Ali, launched its own mini movement in jazz and beyond. Michael Ochs Archives/Getty Images. Fifty years ago, when drummer Rashied Ali entered the Van Gelder Studio in Englewood Cliffs, New Jersey, for his latest session with John Coltrane, he was surprised to find the rest of the saxophonist’s band absent. I went in there, and I was setting up, and I didn’t see Jimmy, I didn’t see Alice ; I didn’t see nobody else, Ali recalled in 2003.
