Music Monday: Coltrane

When talking to a friend (let's call him Horton) at work a while ago, I mentioned that I had just been listening to John Coltrane. When I told Horton that I was listening to A Love Supreme, his response was something like:
You really like that? I didn't think it was possible to like it.
Yeah, I really like it. I love the whole album. I can really get lost in the bass grooves, as well as the piano, sax, and drum solos.

Coltrane could also breath new life into standards. His take on Stardust is lovely.

Don't get me wrong. I like Julie Andrews' version, but Coltrane's My Favorite Things is great.
