Jimmy Garrison , the bassist on "Chasin' the Trane", had recently played with Ornette Coleman 's piano-less quartet,   and, in a interview prior to the recording, Coltrane expressed great admiration for Coleman and acknowledged his influence, stating that "there probably will be some songs in the future that we're going to play, just as Ornette does, with no accompaniment from the piano at all.
I played many times without a piano: Monk So, we played without a piano. The absence of a piano, along with a rhythm section playing with what Gary Giddins called "formidable concentration",  allowed Coltrane to "stretch out" on "Chasin' the Trane". Coltrane stated that "the melody not only wasn't written but it wasn't even conceived before we played it.
We set the tempo, and in we went. He causes patterns to change every bar, or stretches a single pattern across the 2nd and 3rd bar, or the 4th and 5th, or three in a row. In under a minute, Garrison, walking in hiccupped phrasing So some of those things on there are really direct influences of listening to this cat. Nat Hentoff wrote that Coltrane's solo on "Chasin' the Trane" is "particularly fascinating for the astonishing variety of textures Coltrane draws from the full range of his horn,"  reflecting the fact that "when he developed his embouchure to reach the higher notes on the soprano, he started to think in higher pitch ranges for the tenor.

In his liner notes, Nat Hentoff wrote: "Listening to Coltrane in this unyielding performance is so absorbing because it allows the outsider to be present at an uncompromising act of spontaneous creation. Usually, even in jazz, some polishing has been done beforehand to avoid at least some of the dangers of unbridled improvisation; but here the whole piece comes newly and unpredictably alive before us.
