Throwback: Happy 96th Birthday, John Coltrane!

John William Coltrane, one of the most influential and important musicians of the 20th century was born on this day in 1926. I’ve mentioned this countless times: In my home Coltrane was God. My father wasn’t a great man, but I think he was right about Coltrane.

Happy birthday, Mr. Coltrane! Happy birthday, wherever you are!
