The definitive photographic celebration of John Coltrane's life and music, featuring exclusive contributions written by Ravi Coltrane, Wayne Coyne, Dev Hynes, Phil Lesh, Julie Mehretu, Carlos Santana, and Patti Smith.

John Coltrane's impact on music and culture has endured far beyond his prolific career and untimely death in 1967 at age forty. His masterful saxophone style and groundbreaking compositions profoundly affected the evolution of music for decades and continue to resonate across styles and genres to this day. This beautiful photography book offers an intimate and in-depth look at his life with two hundred expertly curated images of the legendary saxophonist and composer. Coltrane further explores John's musical legacy with an introduction by his son and fellow musician Ravi Coltrane along with stories from other musicians, artists, and writers who have been moved by his work.

Coltrane is a visual celebration of one of the all-time great musicians, and a must-have for fans of John Coltrane, jazz, and music photography.

He leads the effort to restore the John Coltrane Home in Dix Hills, Long Island, and presides over important reissues of his parents' recordings.
