"Going on. Here comes one of our editors. Hi, John. Yeah, his office was always a little messy, not fabulously messy, but it had stacks of good things around. He had posters of musicians I admire. There was a John Coltrane poster. There was a Bob Dylan poster. He was calm, which was a wonderful thing anywhere. He never raised his voice, even if he was displeased with someone else. He was quiet. He was funny. He had a very rise sense of humor. It just was really nice being with him, working with him. From the very, very first words we ever exchanged, he was communicating to me that it was, it was John and Evan against the world. And the enemy was the writing. It was the work. It was about how can I help you achieve what you might be able to do on the page. If we just give you a few tools, let's hum a few bars together and see where you go. In my experience, he was like a minimalist editor. He wasn't like, let's go in and rework this piece. So I have very vivid memories of the few times that I overrule John and he was right in retrospect in all of them and they were always things that I thought were cute to be honest and he always thought were cliched and he was right. I called John from the field and say the guys I thought were the good guys were actually massacring whole villages and he'd say, well, for a new take on them and he had that ability to hold contradictions in his mind what keats called negative capability. And I kind of learned from him to roll with these complete reversals of fortune where the whole thing is kind of thrown up in the air because I was covering conflicts sometimes like U.S. policy toward the conflict. We discover something that really ran against the current of the conventional understanding and so we had to consider what the impact of telling the story that way would be and John just was a fantastic interlocutor for that.

"But my Spotify yearend playlist is insane. It's like every other track is a cagey song, and I'm just like, what has happened to my algorithm? What else is there? It'll never recover. It was like a contrast. It was bizarre. The top ten was like, Kenny G, Betty Carter, Kenny G, Bonnie vere. She John Coltrane. It was so bizarre. It was absolutely bizarre. But it just made no sense. And I'm like, is the algorithm just ignoring this because it makes no sense. Yeah. 'cause I haven't noticed anything different in my life discover weekly playlist. I haven't seen any new smooth jazz songs or anything. The final chapters of the film are really interesting because they're about this very self knowing pursuit of relevance on Kenny's party. He realizes he has to gear up, even though he's getting older he's in his 50s and his 60s. He has to use modern technology. He has to use his persona to be successful, and he's pretty shameless. And yet somehow still, yeah. And I'm curious, did you also sense that he was like, this is a part of my strategy to win or is it a little bit more just like my people told me to do this and so I will do it? I think it's the same thing. I mean, he's the strategy to win is the thing. It's like the people told me to do it. So I'll do it. And I think he sees the results, and he gets that it's important. But also, he's never been afraid to laugh at himself, like so, it wasn't like he discovered irony or something, like for Twitter. He's been the butt of many jokes for really a long part of his career and he's always participated in that willingly. And I don't know that psychology, like I can't explain it, but it's consistent. It's not like a newfound thing for him. It's just a new found format for it. Can you tell me a little bit about how you presented the finished film to Kenny? Because he takes some he takes some blows in the film. There's some people who are pretty tough on him. So.

"And guitar fishing out of all over It was his rendition of John Coltrane's impressions And this was a burst of energy and creativity and his approach to single line playing was so overwhelmingly unique that I became an instant fan and when I saw that he was playing in Madison Wisconsin I grew up in Milwaukee I had to drive 90 miles to see him I got to see him playing at nightclub and talk to him after the gig And he invited me back to the hotel room and I interviewed him for about an hour and a half and that was the beginning of a very beautiful friendship that continued all through the rest of his time You mentioned his version of John Coltrane's impressions In fact we have it right here let's listen What's it like to hear that now Well I hear immediately the energy the focused intensity the clean articulation of his picking which was absolutely unique He's a very cerebral cat who thinks about quantum physics and man sacred geometry and I would apply to the fretboard So it was sort of like him throwing the gauntlet down I mean it was full of Thompson swagger and it was taking things up to a new level and a whole generation of guitarists who are on the scene now can point to that tune in that album as something that really was a head turning moment for them It clearly he was.

"This is one of the first records to listen to of his nineteen sixty five work. You've got the band firing in all cylinders on this track later on in the song. Coltrane horn borders on the ecstatic. Welcome is one of the calmer pieces to come out of nineteen sixty. Five vigil is a duet between culturing and elvin jones which may or may not be a cup of tea. Those two pieces may also be found on the kulu sima elm. It's hard to keep track of these days. The living space album is also made up of recordings made on june tenth and june sixteenth. The material for the sound didn't get released until nineteen ninety eight. I had the album but then listen to it for awhile. My passion for jazz at the time had been diminished. It's not until recently that i discovered its terms and i think it's just as essential as and the other material there have been recorded that year. It's at this point in the story when we chance upon ascension. I'm sure for some of you. That tracked n fast enough. I remember listening to ascension twenty-five years ago and mentally writing it off. Just a bunch of chaotic noise couldn't comprehend it at all. It sounded like a bunch of noise and then a solo more noise than a solo. This continued for about forty minutes. What used i half that recording. Why had this been labeled a five star album. Why had it be considered a landmark record every self respecting fanta. jazz should have in their collection. I had a two disc cd set called. The major works of john. Coltrane in a contained both takes of ascension as well as the tracks own. Kulasuria mama and selflessness. I didn't play it very often. In fact i'm pretty sure. I went decades without playing it..

"I find myself humming every now and then in two at the beginning you can hear the poly-rhythms of elvin jones and drums in everything you ever read the poly rhythmic stylings of elvin jones. He's playing more than one rhythm at a time. I never really understood or heard exactly what they meant. I just knew that. I loved how he played with such precision such rhythm such power. But i think i heard some poly-rhythms going on in their all it took was thirty years to here. It is mentioned earlier. Mccoy tyner playing dominates. The second movement resolution alvin dominates the third movement pursuance basis. Jimmy garrison also has a solid towards the end of pursuance. The fourth movement psalm is really interesting. It doesn't sound like anything that coltrane is played before is because culturing plays the notes to the words of a psalm. he's written. There isn't a flurry of notes. Being played here there isn't any straining going in the notes. Refer to specific words. He wants those words to be heard a leave a link for you to follow along in the note section. well i think that Music of the human heart of the human being the does express. Just what is the whole of human expansive. Don't know that the john coltrane quartet plays album is essential. But that's like saying. The beatles album beatles for sale might not be essential which is a joke. You still want songs you still want to hear the continuity the growth. It's still better than ninety percent of everything else.

While he had lived it had been at the forefront of the avant-garde in the early nineteen sixties together. Pushing the music in every direction upon eric. Dolphins passing culturing said. Whatever i'd say would be an understatement. I can only say my life was made much better by knowing him. He was one of the greatest. People i've ever known is a man. A friend and a musician is a story goes eric. Dolphins parents gave his flute and bass clarinet to coltrane. They said they thought they heard eric practicing like he always did and a kept him awake at night. What kind of effect does this have. On culturing for someone who had become the man of the house at the age of twelve after both his father and grandfather passed away for someone who had too many ideas and that enough time to express them up on stage. I think dolphins passing gave him focus. I think after a couple of years of putting out albums with ballads performing a lot of the old warhorses live..

John had begun developing his career for a transition into a solo artist. A huge risk for any musician. John sound was described as complex as he was able to play notes simultaneously in rhythms and scales but seem beyond the reaches of traditional music. Certainly unique to anything that was being created at the time to this day. John's compositions have their own description as sheets of sound john. Sound was distinct special. One of a kind and exactly with the world needed to hear. After working with thelonious monk john applied his newfound knowledge to the work. He began to create with his reunited.
