Expression is an album by jazz saxophonist John Coltrane. Apart from the title track, the rest of the album was recorded at about the same time as Interstellar Space. Expression was released in September 1967, after Coltrane's unexpected death; this was the first posthumous release of a Coltrane recording. All tracks by John Coltrane.

Recorded at two sessions in early 1967, Expression represents John Coltrane's final recording sessions just months before his death. This band, working hard during the time leading up to Coltrane's demise, was performing in the most spiritually reaching territory Coltrane would aspire to. This is evidenced by the burning tenor/drum duet section of "Offering," perhaps the highlight of these sessions.

JOHN COLTRANE - Expression. Filed under Avant-Garde Jazz By JOHN COLTRANE.

John William Coltrane (September 23, 1926 – July 17, 1967) was an American jazz saxophonist and composer. Working in the bebop and hard bop idioms early in his career, Coltrane helped pioneer the use of modes and was at the forefront of free jazz. He led at least fifty recording sessions and appeared on many albums by other musicians, including trumpeter Miles Davis and pianist Thelonious Monk. Over the course of his career, Coltrane's music took on an increasingly spiritual dimension

Exclusively for Prime members. Sample this album Artist (Sample). Expression is not the masterpiece Ascention or my personal favorate, Sun Ship, is, but it shows Trane continuing to invent. Had he lived, this album might have& the start of a whole new direction for Coltrane, maybe even a whole new genre of jazz.
