Happy Birthday To The Greatest Saxophonist, Ever

Saturday would've been the 80th birthday of John Coltrane. If you believe that music has an influence on art, film, culture, and literature, then I hope you realize that Coltrane had an influence similar to that of Bach and The Beatles. He ushered jazz into its first modern era and in one way or another, he touched every thinking woman and man from the mid 50's, up through today.

He was the best wasn't he? Definitely an immortal.

"such a shonda he's peeled."

Dang it, you know my extent of Yiddish! You're always spinning my head!
