John Coltrane (September 23, 1926 July 17, 1967) was a legendary American saxophonist. His bold, aggressive 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.

** Earlier signs of this tendency emerged in his tenure with MilesDavis, who chided Coltrane about his long solos. Trane protested that he didn't know how to stop; Miles suggested [[CaptainObvious taking the horn out of his mouth]].

* ThePerfectionist: Had incredibly high standards for his music, practicing for hours at a time, a habit that bewildered his bandleader MilesDavis, who was no slacker himself. Coltrane would develop his technique in excruciating detail, sometimes searching for weeks just to find a mouthpiece that suited his taste. Some psychologists have hypothesized that this was a symptom of [[SuperOCD obsessive compulsive disorder]], while devotees have pointed out that such extremes may have been quite reasonable for a musician of Coltrane's caliber.
