I love John Coltrane, even if he looks like a 70s movie assassin in this pic. Do you love John Coltrane? All of these people love John Coltrane enough to have written tracks about him.
These are some of my favorite Coltrane tributes. Grab this compilation even if you've got some of them, especially if you haven't heard Carmello Garcia's hot latin jazz 7" single "Trane", or Clifford Jordan's beautiful "John Coltrane" (written by bassist Bill Lee), or Argentinian Alberto Favero's first movement of his orchestral "Suite Trane". Thanks again to the blogsphere - ileoxumare, Orgy In Rhythm, Office Naps and pharaohs-dance - for some of these tracks.
