Heartbreak & Vine Music Festival

Day 3

John Coltrane

In honor of his eighty-third birthday (September 23rd). Had he lived, what sort of music would he be playing? After all, Sonny Rollins and Ornette Coleman are still going strong at 79.

The following video brings back memories of first hearing Coltrane in 1963 at Shelly's Manne Hole, then later at the Jazz Workshop, and, of course, countless late night listening sessions.

Naima: the Quartet, 1965
