We celebrate the birth date of John Coltrane, one of the greatest and most influential jazz masters. Coltrane pioneered a freedom of expression in jazz music that has influenced nearly every jazz musician and those that appreciate this art form. To honor his life, we will listen to one of the greatest composition and performances in all of jazz, A Love Supreme. That is followed by a couple from his gifted son Ravi Coltrane, and finally a 'Trane composition performed by Rochester drummer Mike Melito.
