Review Quotes
"The intensity and accuracy of the scholarship in this monumental effort cannot be praised enough ... To give Coltrane his due in book form is to be as painstaking in researching as Coltrane was in practicing. This book honors its subject through such exercise of care." - AllAboutJazz.com "This opus is clearly the culmination of decades of dedicated and diligent resesarch and is wholly worthy of its illustrious subject. No serious collector of jazz literature can afford to be without it." - Bob Weir, Names & Numbers
