John Coltrane (September 23, 1926 July 17, 1967) was a legendary American saxophonist. His aggressive and bold saxophone style was hugely influential in the avant-garde jazz scene of the early '60s and late in the free jazz scene of the mid to late '60s. Unfortunately, he died at a very young age in 1967, after a series of extremely experimental albums. His legacy includes being worshipped as a saint, and even by some as a deity, but more prosaically, he's still one of the most influential musicians of his generation in that it took at least two generations before sax players didn't automatically try to emulate him.

* FinalBoss: "Giant Steps" has been this for most jazz musicians: it's so difficult that everyone has to be able to demonstrate that they can play it.[[note]]On the original recording, Coltrane is audibly the only one in the band who knows it backwards, presumably because he'd written it. Poor Tommy Flanagan totally messes up his brief solo, although years later he re-recorded it with his own trio and did a great job.[[/note]]

* GodIsLoveSongs: Coltrane was a deeply religious man who had interests in several religions, among them Islam, Buddhishm, and Hinduism. He incorporated musical sounds from these cultures in his own music and recorded an entire album, ''Music/ALoveSupreme'' devoted to his love for God.

* {{Crossover}}: His album with Music/DukeEllington was conceived by his label as an attempt to reassure his listeners that he wasn't going completely avant-garde, but both he and Ellington were such good musicians that the result is one of the best things that either of them ever did.

* EpicRocking: While he'd always had tendencies of this, it ''really'' became his specialty towards the end of his life. He started with ''Ascension'', which consisted of a single forty-minute track, and didn't look back. The peak of his use of this trope is with the album ''Live in Japan'', where the ''shortest'' song is twenty-five minutes long and three of them are ''longer'' than ''Ascension'', with two of them nearing an hour. The album is on four discs despite containing only six tracks.
* GodIsLoveSongs: Coltrane was a deeply religious man who had interests in several religions, among them Islam, Buddhishm and Hinduism. He incorporated musical sounds from these cultures in his own music and recorded an entire album, ''Music/ALoveSupreme'' devoted to his love for God.
