Miles Davis & John Coltrane

My Favorite Friendship

Miles Davis hired John Coltrane for a national tour in 1955. On the road, the two bonded over their mutual passion for music and an almost fanatical desire to push the art form forward. Miles's unconventional approach gave Coltrane an opportunity to refine his burgeoning sound, and together they made some of the most seminal jazz albums of all time, including Kind of Blue.LINKS:https://www.jazzwise.com/features/article/miles-davis-and-john-coltrane-yin-and-yanghttps://www.jazzviews.net/miles-davis--john-coltrane---a-dynamic-relationship.htmlhttps://www.ozy.com/true-and-stories/when-miles-davis-and-john-coltrane-scandalized-paris/85361/https://www.theguardian.com/music/2012/nov/06/miles-davis-interview-rocks-backpagesFOLLOW US:Brian Wohl:Twitter: http://twitter.com/brianwohlInstagram: http://instagram.com/brianwohlFacebook: http://facebook.com/brianwohlMarc Muszynski:Twitter: http://twitter.com/marcmuszynskiInstagram: http://instagram.com/marcmuszynskiFacebook: http://facebook.com/marcmuszynskiMy Favorite Friendship:Facebook: http://facebook.com/myfavoritefriendshipInstagram: http://instagram.com/myfavoritefriendshipTwitter: http://twitter.com/myfavfriendship

Balance Digs John Coltrane

NuDirections FM

For me John Coltrane is one of the few musicians that stands head and shoulder above all the others, (https://www.quora.com/Why-is-John-Coltranes-Giant-steps-considered-the-most-feared-song-in-jazz ), I was lucky enough to be introduced to jazz in the early ’60s by my grandfather and for that, I’m eternally grateful – especially as I was listening to Miles Davis, John Coltrane and others from the age of 10 onwards, and that went on to mould my life long musical interest, taste and passion taking John Coltrane, Miles Davis and Joe Zawinul as my companions. If you have not listened to John Coltrane's music before, take time out and listen to this mix in its entirety, there are cover versions and music inspired by John Coltrane, also ending the mix is John Coltrane’s powerful Love Supreme. Please check out - https://www.jazzdisco.org/john-coltrane/discography/ ) Although John Coltrane did not make old bones, his body of work is just astounding, in both quantity and quality.  I hope you enjoy.

The Dr. Jazz Podcast: The Latin Jazz Side of John Coltrane (Aug 2021)

The Dr. Jazz Podcast

Most Coltrane fans already know he is a titan of jazz. A heavyweight who had a lyrical side ('The Gentle Side of John Coltrane'). He pushed the boundaries of jazz harmony into the stratosphere and still created many spiritual albums and avant-garde albums in his short 40 year span. While re-reading Lewis Porter's phenomenal book 'John Coltrane: His Life and Music,' he discussed how Coltrane was exposed to a great degree of Latin Jazz while living in Philadelphia and how many straight-ahead players were quite versed in various forms of Latin Jazz around Philly. He also learned how to craft a great deal of Latin Jazz elements into his own writing through his time in Dizzy Gillespie's band. Reading this lead me to the idea of just how much "Latin Jazz" was actually evident in Trane's recorded catalog. To my surprise, there was a great deal. This newfound appreciation for this side of Coltrane and his music has lead me to create this episode of the podcast. I hope you dig it!
