This will put paid to many people's notions of soloing!

A fantastic piece musically, and the notation really helps to visualise what is going on there. The chord progression ain't the easiest to solo over either, in the early head you can follow the progression as it is notated, it's quite complex I'm sure you'll agree!

Not an easy one to play or solo over by any stretch of the imagination, but then, Coltrane was a bit good wasn't he!

It might be a little bit away from the topic...but...What is music but poetry in motion? And I think, this qualifies as poetry in motion.

As far as drummers go, I'd take Tony Williams any day.

Tony Williams is pretty darn good! He played on Public Image ltd's "Compact Disc" album, spillting the record with Ginger Baker. His drumming on "Rise" is incredible. No flashy fills or mad polyrhythms, just a steady, pounding beat with an absolutley thunderous sound. Jonas Hellborg also appeared playing bass on that record, alongside Steve Vai on guitar.
