Interstellar Space NASA

Interstellar Space was released in September 1974 by Impulse! Records. In a contemporary review for Rolling Stone, music journalist Stephen Davis called the album “plainly astounding” and found Ali to be the ideal complement for Coltrane’s mystical ideas: “He outlandishly returns the unrelenting outpour of energy spewing from Trane, and the result is a two-man vulcanism in which Ali provides the subterranean rumblings through which the tenor explodes in showers of notes. ” Robert Christgau wrote in his column for The Village Voice that he was amazed by the duets, which “sound like an annoyance until you concentrate on them, at which point the interactions take on pace and shape, with metaphorical overtones that have little to do with the musical ideas being explored. ”
