John William Coltrane, also known as “Trane” was born on the 23rd of Setember, year 1926.

A year with ups and downs and with new developments that would make our lives easier. But, most important of all, it was the year when the American jazz saxophonist, our beloved Trane, was born!
Let us travel in time and see which were the highlights of John Coltrane’s career!
📍 1938 – 1945
In June 1943 he moved to Philadelphia. In September of that year his mother bought him his first saxophone, an alto. Coltrane played the clarinet and the alto horn in a community band before taking up the alto saxophone during high school. He had his first professional gigs in early to mid-1945 – a “cocktail lounge trio,” with piano and guitar.
📍1946 – 1954
In Philadelphia after the war, he studied jazz theory with guitarist and composer Dennis Sandole and continued under Sandole’s tutelage through the early 1950s. An important moment in the progression of Coltrane’s musical development occurred on June 5, 1945, when he saw Charlie Parker perform for the first time. Coltrane was a member of groups led by Dizzy Gillespie, Earl Bostic and Johnny Hodges in the early to mid-1950s.
📍 1955 – 1957
In the summer of 1955, Coltrane was freelancing in Philadelphia while studying with guitarist Dennis Sandole when he received a call from Davis, the trumpeter.
During this period, Davis released several influential recordings that revealed the first signs of Coltrane’s growing ability.
Blue Train, in 1957, was Coltrane’s sole date as leader for Blue Note is often considered his best album from this period. Four of its five tracks are original Coltrane compositions, and the title track, “Moment’s Notice”, and “Lazy Bird”, have become standards.
📍 1959 – 1965
In 1961, Around the end of his tenure with Davis, Coltrane had begun playing soprano, an unconventional move considering the instrument’s neglect in jazz at the time.
During this period, critics were fiercely divided in their estimation of Coltrane, who had radically altered his style. Audiences, too, were perplexed.
In 1965, A Love Supreme was produced and it is a culmination of much of Coltrane’s work up to this point, this four-part suite is an ode to his faith in and love for God. These spiritual concerns characterized much of Coltrane’s composing and playing from this point onwards—as can be seen from album titles such as Ascension, Om and Meditations.
📍 1965 – 1967
June 1965, he went into Van Gelder’s studio with ten other musicians to record Ascension, a 40-minute piece that included solos by the young avant-garde musicians and was controversial primarily for the collective improvisation sections that separated the solos.
