No doubt about that! 🎷 ❤️
He is a legend!
Thank you! I often wonder the same myself.
Considering that a good portion of his most acclaimed and groundbreaking works came from his later free period I feel that he still had a lot to say.
Nevertheless, I am eternally grateful for what he was able to make. The amount of legendary music he made within his relatively short career is immense.
Amazing work going through so many recordings, as a huge Coltrane guy myself I haven't even heard half of these. I always wonder what he would do if he had another 20 years with us considering his incredible innovations.
I appreciate that very much!
I recommend checking out more of his work if you enjoyed those two albums. He is one of the most consistent musicians ever! :)
I must applaud you for going this far. I myself have only heard a love supreme and blue train, and it’s insane to see that someone was dedicated enough to go through this many releases.
Appreciate it! Going to work on ranking Miles Davis next.
