From the Routledge website:
"Few jazz musicians have had the lasting influence - or attracted as much
scholarly study - as John Coltrane. Yet, despite dozens of books, hundreds
of articles, and his own recorded legacy, the 'facts' about Coltrane's life
and work have never been definitely established. In The John Coltrane
Reference, well-known Coltrane biographer and jazz educator Lewis Porter has assembled an international team of scholars to remedy this situation."
Verve/Impulse started a Traneumentary including a weblog and a podcast series celebrating the artistry and recordings of John Coltrane. Now I just have to check out I-Tunes to see how I can get those podcasts. Any help is of course appreciated. I’ll post the link to the Traneumentary weblog in the Jazz Blogs section.
