This visually-appealing and musically-enhanced site serves as the official John Coltrane site, developed by the John Coltrane Foundation as a home for information about one of the most influential jazz musicians of the past century. Over his brilliant music career, Coltrane was responsible for creating many albums that have become jazz standards, such as "My Favorite Things," "Africa Brass," Giant Steps," and the provocative and cerebral "Interstellar Space." On the site, visitors can read about Coltrane's life and musical legacy, along with listening to one of fifteen Coltrane classics, including "Central Park West," "Naima," or his tender rendition of "Nancy (with the Laughing Face)." Another multimedia facet of the site are the videos available, featuring Coltrane's legendary solo "So What" from "The Sound of Miles Davis" television special and the only solo live rendering of "A Love Supreme" recorded in Antibes, France in 1965. The site is rounded out with information about the John Coltrane Foundation (established to provide scholarships to outstanding young musicians) and an online store.
