Session Details: 

Track #8 is listed in some sources as "based on John Coltrane's 'Impressions'", but also attributed directly to Coltrane, as composer. This is confusing, since Coltrane wrote songs called "Impressions" and "Expression", while this session of Smith's uses the plural "Expressions". Listening to the song it's hard to tell how it could be 'based' on either, which leads one to believe it is, indeed, a Smith original. Doug Payne says it is a Lonnie Smith original, but allmusic says otherwise. Below are some liner notes that calls it an original, but also lists the connection to Coltrane's tune. -JS
