John William Coltrane, also known as "Trane" (September 23, 1926 – July 17, 1967), was an American jazz saxophonist and composer. Working in the bebop and hard bop idioms early in his career, Coltrane helped pioneer the use of modes in jazz and was later at the forefront of free jazz. He organized at least fifty recording sessions as a leader during his career, and appeared as a sideman on many other albums, notably with trumpeter Miles Davis and pianist Thelonious Monk.As his career progressed, Coltrane and his music took on an increasingly spiritual dimension. His second wife was pianist Alice Coltrane and their son Ravi Coltrane is also a saxophonist. Coltrane influenced innumerable musicians, and remains one of the most significant saxophonists in music history. He received many posthumous awards and recognitions, including canonization by the African Orthodox Church as Saint John William Coltrane and a special Pulitzer Prize in 2007.

1Intense gaze
1You can play a shoestring if you're sincere.
2Overall, I think the main thing a musician would like to do is give to the listener the many wonderful things he knows of and senses in the universe ... That's what I would like to do. I think that's one of the greatest things you can do in life and we all try to do that in some way. The musician's is through his music.
3I want to be a force for real good. In other words, I know that there are bad forces, forces that bring suffering to others and misery to the world, but I want to be the opposite force. I want to be the force which is truly for good.
4[on his approach to performance] I start from one point and go as far as possible. But, unfortunately, I never lose my way. I 'localize', which is to say that I think always in a given space.I rarely think of the whole of a solo, and only very briefly. I always return to the small part of the solo that I was in the process of playing. The harmonies have become for me a kind of obsession.
1Regarded as the father figure of avant-garde jazz.
2Uncle of Flying Lotus.
3Father of saxophonist Ravi Coltrane.
4Inducted into the Big Band and Jazz Hall of Fame in 1980.
5Legendary jazz musician. Established himself by playing with jazz trumpet virtuoso Miles Davis, with whom he played from 1955-1959. Played tenor sax on Miles Davis' 1959 jazz landmark recording, "A Kind Of Blue". Has a son, Ravi Coltrane, born in 1965, who is also a jazz musician.
