    John Coltrane. It feels like you can hear him speaking through his horn. He had a lot to say. Jazz is like a great deep book with a rich vocabulary of words and turns of phrase from cover to cover. If you listen, there is so much there.

“Coltrane on Soprano, 1963”, captures the performer in his musical element. Coltrane was one of photographer Roy DeCarava’s favorite subjects. “I traveled up and down the East Coast to hear him play and to photograph him. I shot photos in the clubs with the lighting that was available. If I thought I was bothering him, then I wouldn’t shoot. I would just listen to the music.”

John Coltrane. I believe that's his wife Alice in the background. Alice McLeod was from Detroit and I believe he met her there in the vibrant, integrating Westside jazz scene. Legend has it he played Detroit a lot @ places like the Bluebird and the Minor Key.
