John Coltrane


Ride on the Blue Train

Grips, destination unknown

Never to return

*After spending years as a side man in various

quartets/quintets, most notably Miles Davis,

“Blue Train” was considered John Coltrane’s

first solo album.  A fantastic example of hard

bop, showing the genius of Trane’s musical

talent.  “Grip” is another word for luggage.
