There was a mystical quality, a profound melancholy emanating from this quiet, self-contained man that moved listeners,some of whom knew little about music but heard something beyond music's boundaries in the sounds his saxophone created. Thomas traces John Coltrane's life and career from his North Carolina childhood through his apprenticeship with Dizzy Gillespie, Thelonious Monk, and Miles Davis, to its culmination in the saxophonist's classic quartet that played to steadily increasing audiences throughout America, Europe, and Japan.
The author has drawn on the recollections of the people who knew Coltrane best,boyhood friends, band members like Elvin Jones, spiritual mentors like Ravi Shankar, and the women who loved him.
Chasin' the Trane is the story of a man who struggled against drug addiction, studied African and Eastern music and philosophy, admired both Einstein's expanding universe and the shimmering sounds a harp makes, and left behind the enduring legacy of a master musician who was also a beautiful man.

Rock Climb Chasin the Trane, Frankenjura
Seller Inventory ING Condition: new. Publisher: Da Capo Press , Alas, for all those glimmers, Coltrane never did achieve the melodicism he admired. His own tendencies were much too busy. Trane presents the theme, and then pianist McCoy Tyner solos. When Coltrane at last begins to improvise, poor serene, lyrical Naima quickly transforms into something shrieking and frenzied.
John Coltrane Chasin’ the Trane
The saxophonist keens repeated figures, counterattacking with honking notes on the bottom of the horn. Instead of melody there is wailing, squawking, and barking. Is it angry, as many critics perceived it, or ecstatic, as many musicians experienced it?

The Telegraph chose not to publish it. Coltrane was the gentlest jazz giant, generous to a fault, reluctant to speak ill of other musicians or even critics. His spiritualism may have been something of a hodgepodge, but he was serious in his conviction that what was supreme was love. But one wonders: Has that been an unalloyed good?
Or has Coltrane-worship made new and new-old directions in jazz seem like apostasy?
There are reasons to think Coltrane would be the last to embrace his eminence in the canon. The fleet-fingered scale-runners find an Everest of virtuosity to summit. Those with less skill can at least adopt the distinctively brittle tone that Coltrane maintained through his many evolutions.
In his last years, Coltrane encouraged to take the stage with him a motley parade of players whose concept of free jazz expression was to move the keys on their horns and blow at length, natch. Perhaps no one would have been less happy than Coltrane himself with the way his various styles and sounds became and remain the dominant idioms of jazz.
