John Coltrane's influence on jazz cannot be overstated. He freed the music from its traditional forms and injected a new (and at times controversial) improvisational approach to the music. His intensity and dedication to moving jazz forward to a new level of the art form is unmatched. Nearly every sax player (and jazz musician in general) will tell you that John Coltrane has had a profound influence on their playing. His birthday was September 23, 1926. We start with about 40 minutes of uninterrupted Coltrane followed by music from Kenny Garrett, Pharaoh Sanders and Robert Glasper.

    I think I’ve listened to this in Podcast format at least 10 times this past week. Really well thought out tribute to the great and brilliant John Coltrane. It warms my soul.
