    Sheets of Sound relate how Coltrane’s approach was in the late ’50’s. His appraoach to improvisation changed a bit in the 60’s … Listen to Coltrane In Seattle album to compare! His style
    became “Way Out there” relatively! This is very intense music, very strong!

    Sheets of Sound is a way of describing how he made his rapid arpeggios on his sax sound like bed sheets hung out, and rippling in the strong wind! Some famous jazz critic coined the expression. My guess is Ira Gitler. or Leonard Feather.
