Happy Birthday John Coltrane

Today (Sept. 23) is John Coltrane’s birthday. Born in 1926, he would have been 80 years old. I think everyone would agree that Coltrane was one of the greatest and most influential artist/composers of the 20th Century. Even if you are not a jazz musician and have never heard his music, Coltrane most likely influenced somebody who influenced you!

So take a moment today, put on one of his records if you have any, and reflect on the impact John Coltrane has had on the world. Happy birthday, ‘Trane. We miss you!
