9781556520044: Coltrane on Coltrane: The John Coltrane Interviews (Musicians in Their Own Words)

Named one of the best jazz books of 2010 by Jazz Times’s reader poll

John Coltrane created a new sound, a music that had nothing to do with anyone except himself. The path he chose was difficult and risky. Nevertheless, he persisted, and his recordings now stand among the greatest of all jazz achievements. And his life, thoughts, and words have been just as inspiring as his music. This book collects those words for the first time.

Coltrane was a gracious and conscientious interviewee. His responses were thoughtful and measured; he rarely said anything negative about others (though he could be highly self-critical). He freely gave credit to those who influenced and inspired him. Interviewer after interviewer noted how different Coltrane seemed from his music--this quiet man whose music was so volcanic.

Coltrane on Coltrane includes every known Coltrane interview, many in new transcriptions, and several previously unpublished; articles, reminiscences, and liner notes that rely on interviews; and some of Coltrane’s personal writings and correspondence.

John Coltrane never wrote an autobiography. This book is as close to one as possible.

About the Author:

Chris DeVito is a freelance writer, a copy editor, and the lead author of The John Coltrane Reference, which was named the BBC's jazz book of the year in 2008. He lives in Urbana, Illinois.

Review:

"A fascinating and important compendium of the jazz icon's own words. . . . Through these gripping and revealing interviews, Coltrane comes alive. . . . Though many solid books have been written about Coltrane, this compilation of source materials provides an intimate view of the man and his music. Certainly one of the best music books of the year."  —Library Journal



“The type of book that should be compiled on every great musician. It is an inspired concept that is perfectly done.”  —Los Angeles Jazz Scene



"From start to finish, it's nothing short of engrossing."  —Smooth magazine



“There’s plenty for a serious jazz fan to absorb from this interesting collection. . . . Coltrane’s own words about his music and life deserve our attention.”  —JazzTimes.com
