John Coltrane, jazz saxophonist (tenor saxophone, soprano saxophone, alto saxophone), born 23 September 1926 in Hamlet, North Carolina, United States, and died 17 July 1967 in Huntington, New York, United States.
“By 19, I was learning the mathematics of jazz, which is hard for someone with no grasp of maths. Coltrane is the master of well-formulated, perfectly composed music. He also played a very spiritual style of jazz. It was almost religious. You could even say he channelled the divine through his sax. It was A Love Supreme from 1965 which I connected with. It took a while, for some reason getting into Coltrane felt like a slow process, but he taught me the basics, so its no surprise I got into him when I was taking a year out after school to decide what to do with my life. He was my epiphany.” The 10 best jazz musicians by Jamie Cullum
“Coltrane, you cant play everything at once!”
