Interview with John Coltrane
I admire Coltrane's spiritual and religious commitment. I don't always understand his music but I admire him as a spiritual force. I have listened to A Love Supreme quite a bit and it still eludes me. Still, he is a very interesting man. He discusses music and on the point of musicians (and anybody) understanding, Coltrane says, "The person who doesn't understand, will understand in time upon repeated listening, or also he never will understand. And, that's the way it is. There are many things in life we don't understand and we go on anyway."

Commenting almost two years too late, but I'm glad I found someone showing interest in such an amazing interview of an amazing man and musician. A lot of "stars" are great musicians but don't really have anything to say as people, but Coltrane is always a good listening in interviews, mostly because of his humble (as bright) approach to the topic in question.
