Always Celebrating Trane

Talk About You - Always Celebrating Trane

 

"I'd like to point out to people the divine in a musical language that transcends words. I want to speak to their souls."   ——  John Coltrane

 

One of the most important artists of the 20th century was a Philadelphian. He was our neighbor. He walked among us. He lived among us. He was not born here, but he became a man and a professional musician here. We celebrate his birthday every September 23rd. But, we actually celebrate his mastery, his creativity and his generosity every time we listen to his music, or utter his name.

Philly Jazz Quotes

On my first record with him, I used no notes, just sound... I never played as powerfully as I did with Sunny Murray... he plays pulse, not beats.
