Elvin is by far the bigger influence in my own playing, but what Rashied Ali did with Trane is quite brilliant.
I spent twenty minutes the other day trying to describe 'Interstellar Space' to a friend of mine that had never heard it. I realised the only value in trying to describe it comes from the urge to listen to it. Wonderful. One of my all-time favourites.
