John Coltrane –

This is Dad’s quintessential image, and you could see the love and care that went into it.

I appreciate the music, the Coltrane Family, and very much the affect that John Coltrane’s friendship had on my Dad.

The 50th Anniversary of ‘Love Supreme’ was celebrated by the Smithsonian on March 26,2014, and the Ravi Coltrane Quartet was fantastic. Due respespect to Ravi, he looks like John with glasses. Those fortunate enough to see his Dad play will say that he got the ‘chops, too – honestly’. When the Ravi Coltrane Quartet is in your town, you better go, or you will have missed a blessing.

Thanks for your graciousness, Ravi, and your wonderful rememberance of your parents spirit and contribution to a great American Art and spiritual┬áconscious. I can’t wait to see you and your Crew again – very, very soon! – ┬áChris Stewart
