John Coltrane. This week in The New Jazz Archive it's the life and music of John Coltrane. We'll talk with our jazz historian and renowned Coltrane scholar Lewis Porter about Trane's early roots growing up in rural North Carolina, and get to know the softer side of John Coltrane the balladeer. And we'll explore John Coltrane's redemption story and his transformation from heroin addict to spiritual icon, and sit down for a conversation with Ravi Coltrane about how his father's music unexpectedly inspired him to carry on the family legacy.
