Jazz Beat #25 - John Coltrane

Sep 21, 2016

John Coltrane, whose 90th birthday is Friday, September 23rd, had a short but episodic career. On the latest edition of Jazz Beat, New England Public Radio’s Tom Reney takes a look at an important transition in Coltrane’s life, when he made his final tour with Miles Davis and first began playing soprano saxophone, which was a gift from Miles to the tenor sax-playing icon.
