Coltrane 101: Echoes of a Giant

New York Times music critic Ben Ratliff has written an introductory essay on John Coltrane occasioned by an upcoming string of New York concerts interpreting his music. Having read many books on Coltrane and as an avid fan, I recommend the article to you. I only wish I were in New York to hear the concerts.

Hey Doug,

Let's do it!

Let's throw caution to the wind and hop on some planes and catch some of these concerts. You and I, we'll do it!

It'll be the opportunity of a life time, and as an added bonus we can haggle about philosophy, truth and theology.

What do you say?????

I wish... But I'm not member of the jet set.

If a patron wants to fly me out, I'll write up on the world famous blog.
