In class we watched a documentary about the life of John Coltrane. He was a very spiritual sax player who developed an original new sound in jazz. He has become iconic with the genre to the point that his name has almost become synonymous with jazz, like many of the greats including Louis Armstrong, Dizzy Gillespie, and Charlie Parker. I realize that jazz isn't everyone's cup of tea, but I would encourage everyone to give it a try. If you already have a favorite jazz artist, who is it? My favorites are John Paul Larkin and Dizzy Gillespie.
