John Coltrane is certainly one of the most influential and revered Jazz Masters. Broadcast on 'Trane's 90th birth anniversary, this podcast contains music from both of his great quartets. Other than a couple of tracks that cover Coltrane tunes (Pharoah Sanders, Kenny Garrett) this podcast is all Trane.
