One of the many things I love about this album is Coltrane and Flanagan's playing on the title track. Coltrane is playing like a man possessed and Tommy is doing everything he can to keep up. At times Tommy's playing reminds me of a man who's decided to face the hurricane full-on and just do his best. And that he did. God, I love this album.
