John Coltrane

Bürgerl. Name:
John William Coltrane
Profil:
American saxophonist and jazz composer.

Born: 23 September 1926 in Hamlet, North Carolina, USA.
Died: 17 July 1967 in Huntington, Long Island, New York, USA (aged 40) from liver cancer.

John Coltrane was one of the most influential musicians of the twentieth century. His early recordings capture a musician in the relatively conventional confines of bebop and hardbop, but his enduring legacy primarily rests on the modal jazz pioneered by his classic quartet (1960-64) and by free jazz explorations late in his career.

He recorded more than fifty albums as a leader and appeared as a sideman on many other albums, performing with other giants of jazz like Miles Davis and Thelonious Monk. Coltrane received numerous awards including a posthumous "Special Citation" from the Pulitzer Prize Board in 2007 for his 'masterful improvisation, supreme musicianship and iconic centrality to the history of jazz'.

As his life progressed, his music and outlook became increasingly spiritual. After his death he was proclaimed as a saint by the African Orthodox church that took his name.

Coltrane's second wife was pianist Alice Coltrane; their son Ravi Coltrane is also a saxophonist.

Why has Impulse not released a vinyl version of A Love Supreme live in Antibes (1965) as it is the ONLY live rendition of this suite? A staggering omission of a very important musical document!

Now to my opinion he is the greatest jazz players in his time. He has it all the groving with miles davis and after that he invented the free jazz scene...

With Lester Young, Sonny Rollins and Coleman Hawkins, John Coltrane figures among the best and most influential tenor saxophonists all-time.

It's difficult to choose the John Coltrane masterpiece I like the most. It's like if this legendary saxophonist was meant to be blessed, with a special mission to touch everybody's Souls with his greatness and a very unique sense of ART.

Jazz acquired an even broader meaning through its modalities, improvisations, experimentations and ground-breaking will - a definition for Mr. Giant Step.
