John Coltrane was born in 1926. Coltrane blew the tenor saxophone to new thresholds of intensity and rescued the soprano saxophone from obscurity. He initially won notice as a romantic interpreter of ballads, moving rapidly forward into explorations of complex harmonics and unprecedented improvisation extensions. Still regarded by many as a musical messiah, Coltrane's most revered compositions include "A Love Supreme," "Giant Steps," "Moment's Notice," and "Equinox."
