Marsalis and Coltrane

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???
