erely mention the name John Coltrane and you’re likely to evoke a deeply emotional, often spiritual response from even the most casual jazz fan.
BORN SEPTEMBER 23, 1926 in Hamlet, North Carolina, John Coltrane was always surrounded by mu-sic. His father played several instruments sparking Col-trane’s study of E-flat horn and clarinet. While in high school, Coltrane’s musical influences shifted to the
Mlikes of Lester Young and Johnny Hodges prompting him to switch to alto saxo-phone. He continued his musical training in Philadel-phia at Granoff Studios and the Ornstein School of Mu-sic. He was called to military service during WWII, where he performed in the U.S. Navy Band in Hawaii.
AFTER THE WAR, COL-TRANE began playing tenor saxophone with the Eddie “CleanHead” Vinson Band, and was later quoted as saying, “A wider area of listening opened up for me. There were many things
that people like Hawk, and Ben and Tab Smith were do-ing in the ‘40’s that I didn’t understand, but that I felt emotionally.”
Prior to joining the Dizzy Gillespie band, Coltrane performed with Jimmy Heath where his passion for experimentation began to take shape. However, it was his work with the Miles Davis Quintet in 1958 that would lead to his own musi-cal evolution. “ Miles music gave me plenty of freedom,” he once said. During that period, he became known for using the three-on-one
instrument to create posi-tive thought patterns in the minds of people.

Also, popular tel-evision series such as “NYPD Blue”, “The Cosby Show”, “Day’s Of Our Lives”, “Crime Stories” and “ER”.

chord approach, and what has been called the ‘sheets of sound,’ a method of play-ing multiple notes at one time.
BY 1960 COLTRANE HAD formed his own quartet which included pianist Mc-Coy Tyner, drummer Elvin Jones, and bassist Jimmy Garrison. Eventually adding players like Eric Dolphy, and Pharoah Sanders.
