Summary ´ PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook ☆ Paolo Parisi

Read & Download ë Coltrane Û PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook 'My music is the spiritual expression of what I am my faith my knowledge my being' John Coltrane rose from a hard and impoverished childhood in North Carolina to become one of the greatest jazz musicians of all time From session musician to band member of Charlie Parker Dizzy Gillespie and Miles Davis his raw talent and passion for experimenta This is a brief look at John Coltrane s life told in short sporadic bursts that flit in a nonlinear way through the events history and records that he witnessed and experienced This kind of jazz storytelling is interesting but could have been just as effective if his story had been told in a cradle to grave style of most biographiesThe main problem with the book is its silence It s a comic book about one of the great jazz musicians of the 20th century and yet just seeing him playing and seeing musical notes in bubbles isn t nearly the same as listening to the music itself And that s the limit of this artistic medium when trying to express something approaching another artistic medium it falls shortWhile the book is good at recounting the events of Coltrane s life it just tells you things about Coltrane and doesn t come close to expressing what this man means to so many To do this listen to his music his records were and continue to be the best biography of the man anyone could ask for as it s the truest expression of who he was
