Music never seems to grow old. There is always a song being played that even if a thousand and eighty five years old claims somebody's heart. I guess that is what is so special about the music that we listen to. Beautiful in every way and flows as peaceful as a river through our ears and into our hearts and souls.
John Coltrane has one of those effects on me. Exciting music in every way. Sounds so sweet they taste like red velvet cake to the ears. Music so calming, you could listen to it and forget about all your worries for a moment. Tones so deep that you feel like expressing yourself through songwriting or poetry. Riffs so rich you want to harmonize with them, singing. Music so inspiring that children all over the world find interest in instruments like the saxophone, learn to play and then never put their instruments down for the rest of their lives. He definitely was a great in my heart and I totally appreciate all the music that he has allowed people like you and me to listen to.
This post all came about for two reasons. I heard that today, September 23, was John Coltrane's birthday and also, it is Music Monday. What a great day to listen and let it sink in? And what a day to write something special that is on your heart and set it to song? And what a great day to listen to some great tunes and dance to the end of love with it blaring in the background? What a day to celebrate and pay respect to his beautiful talent?
God bless you John Coltrane. You were truly a great. And your melodies still linger on.
