Before Interstellar Space there was Meditations.
Before that, the classic A Love Supreme.
Before that, I suppose My Favourite Things (the song, more than the whole album) would be an example of Coltrane getting into the Free thing.
...and finally, lest we forget, Live at the Village Vanguard, which (I believe) falls between ALS and Meditations, chronologically.
Anyway, check them out and hear Coltrane's progression into Freedom.
