    *Un album comme on en réussit qu’un dans sa carrière.*

    Ainsi parlait le Monk à propos de ce disque magnifique de *John Coltrane* ;
    qui porte superbement son titre, *pas de géant.*

    A écouter attentivement, encore et encore…?

    +David Peretiatko You’re really coming of as an ignorant asshole who
    clearly knows nothing about jazz music. Also, using “nigger” is a racial
    slur. It originates from the days of slavery, from the word “negro”. It’s a
    slang of this term that white slave owners called their slaves. It’s also
    real racist no matter what context it’s in.

    On to your point about this being easy, you clearly know nothing about this
    type of music. No, it’s not just a bunch of scales going up and down, and
    no, a random piano player can’t just sit down and play this. It takes work.
    I would know, I’ve been playing the tenor saxophone for about 4 years, have
    been in multiple jazz bands, and I honestly think that you’re some kid with
    daddy issues who needs to shut up and enjoy the amazing music being out in
    front of you.

    Good day sir.?

    Personally, I’d put Coltrane ahove Miles Davis. His music is much more
    euphoric and entertaining, while Davis’ is soothing but for a different
    kind of ocassion. Oh well, hoth are good in their own ways really. Smoking
    and drinking some whiskey would be appropriate for Miles, while John’s
    would easily fit a nice walk through the city.?

    Forgive me, and correct me if I’m wrong, but was the spirit of jazz
    originally to have fun and experiment with improvisation?

    It seems like after a few decades, jazz musicians began placing too much
    emphasis on technical precision, complexity, and lost the spirit as a
    result. I do not hear the music on this album as coming 110% from the
    heart, which is disappointing because I am sure Coltrane was more than
    capable, and would have been far greater than he is already considered.

    Or it could just be me. I began playing the violin and piano in 6th grade,
    but I gave them up after two years and picked up the guitar instead. I
    suppose I developed an ear that prefers beautiful melodies as a result.
    Last September I decided to join my high school’s jazz/concert band (as a
    senior). I have learned a lot about rhythm/swing, music theory, and my
    style of play has been greatly affected; improved I suppose.

    I don’t know… when it comes down to it, music is an art form; a way to
    express one’s self. I feel that jazz musicians have isolated themselves
    from the masses and have made their music “listenable” for only people with
    “knowledge” of music. A major factor of that being what I already
    mentioned: they lost the original spirit which made jazz/swing appeal to a
    far greater percentage of people. ?

    “A major landmark in jazz history: Changed the way of the saxophone forever
    and placed Coltrane in the category of elite jazz pioneers with his complex
    chordal constructions in “Giant Steps” and “Countdown.” Listen to Cedar
    Walton and Tommy Flanagan struggle with the changes to “Giant Steps” to
    observe what a chordal challenge Coltrane presents. Totally different than
    Kind of Blue and yet one of the most significant contributions to jazz.”
