I like this album over A Love Supreme..

This album is good, but it could have a little bit more energy within it. Still, it does have a lot of energy, but if you want even more, check out something like ''Live @ Birdland''

John Coltrane's album Crescent bursts forth with a creativity unique and sublime. From the depths of blue jazz comes a singular musical emotion, featured prominently on the poetic and tragic tunes Crescent and Wise One. This transcends to the fast paced fervor of the quick and bright Bessie's Blues, and returns into deep dark blue with the saddening unstoppable Lonnie's Lament. Truly the Coltrane Quartet has created a masterpiece. Coltrane's saxohphone is expressive beyond compare, and plays within the framework of all 5 songs to a degree matched only by the perfectly aligned piano from McCoy Tyner. Not to downplay the other incredible musicians, all of whom play with amazing proficiency and style, making the music a collection of instruments vibrating off each other in an intense expressive energy. Of particular note is Elvin Jones on The Drum Thing, a far out escape into the realm of rhythm and freeform musical wonder, rounding off the album and giving it the perfect finish. Not one of these tracks is without unique power and beauty, and all of them represent the highest level of astounding and unparalelled performance. Only the Coltrane Quartet has the ability to express so profoundly the art of jazz.
