Ascension - - John Coltrane.
John Coltrane had no intentions of pandering to any particular fan of music when he created this; he simply created it. Due to its very nature, it is probably the most polarizing album in the Coltrane discography, and could be the best thing you've ever heard just as likely as being the worst.

Ascension is a jazz album by John Coltrane recorded in 1965 and released in 1966.
Ascension is considered to be Coltrane’s watershed album, a move away from the hard bop quartet formula, and decisively in the direction of free jazz. In a radio interview Coltrane modestly described it as a big band thing, though it is not like any big band recording made before. Dave Liebman called the album the torch that lit the free jazz thing.
