i heard Branson Marsalis give a talk with Ashley Cohen on John Coltrane. I'm now a huge enthusiast of both Coltrane and Marsalis.
I'm picking up a few facts myself. Coltrane debuted in 1955 as a side man. As a child he suffered several losses -- father, grandparents, uncle
Grd. h.s. hamlet NC, 1943 & moved to Philly ------------- 1951 --- he started using heroin
[[ see notes in Moleskin notebook ]]
His son is also a jazz artist (Ravi or Raja)
where did coletrane go to high school???
