Unbiased reviews of new vinyl releases, audiophile reissues, and more
Thursday, September 24, 2009
Yesterday, John Coltrane would have been 83 years old. Amazing, that he's now been gone longer than he was with us. Still, he continues to entertain and inspire us, day after day.
After two weeks of listening to virtually nothing but The Beatles, I've taken a break from them. And in celebration of Coltrane's life, I've been playing his music all day, and I hope that you'll join me in celebrating his larger than life spirit.
Below, I've included some of my favorite photos, as well as live performances of So What (with Coltrane on tenor) and My Favorite Things (with Coltrane on soprano and Eric Dolphy on flute). I hope you enjoy them.
