Coltrane - the story of a sound

Coltrane - the story of a sound

Excellent...Ratliff guides us through the thickets of the jazz scene with precision, delicacy and an absolute absence of polemic.

Author: Ben Ratliff



John Coltrane, who died aged 40 in 1967, is one of half of a dozen truly fundamental contributors to the history of jazz. No one - not Armstrong or Ellington, nor even Charlie Parker -inspires quite the same mystique or continuing intensity of fascination and influence.  In Coltrane, the New York Times jazz critic Ben Ratliff has written the first book to do justice to this great and controversial music pioneer.
