 'After The Rain'

'After The Rain'

Jazz
By John Coltrane

This is my 300th song of the day so it had to be a significant one. I have been thinking of a special song to choose for most of the day. After a 5:30pm motorcycle ride home in the rain, it was obvious that it would have to be this beautiful piece from Coltrane. "After The Rain" connected with me as a teenager new to jazz music. It truly grabbed me emotionally as it does today.

John William Coltrane (September 23, 1926 – July 17, 1967) was an American jazz saxophonist and composer. Working in the bebop and hard bop idioms early in his career, Coltrane helped pioneer the use of modes and was at the forefront of free jazz. He led at least fifty recording sessions and appeared on many albums by other musicians, including trumpeter Miles Davis and pianist Thelonious Monk. Over the course of his career, Coltrane's music took on an increasingly spiritual dimension. He remains one of the most influential saxophonists in music history. He received many posthumous awards, including canonization by the African Orthodox Church and a Pulitzer Prize in 2007. His second wife was pianist Alice Coltrane and their son, Ravi Coltrane, is also a saxophonist.
