Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The genius of Coltrane lay in his philosophical approach to music, his intensity, and his dazzling technique. Here are interviews, reviews, commentary, and insights into possibly the first truly original and artistically successful voice in saxophone playing since Parker and Young. Originally trained in bop, Coltrane was able to adapt his technique to his own personal style, which evolved dramatically through the 1950s and 1960s. From bop through modal improvisation to free jazz, he insisted on self-growth. Coltrane's deeply felt religion was the foundation of his intensity. The resulting sound was one of searching, searching with such intensity that he often seemed to be frustrated by the limitations of his instrument.
