Coltrane, jazz education, and attempting to be cool

This was originally a late-night facebook rant.  Not my most articulate moment but I still agree with the sentiment!

"I recently woke up and starting listening to John Coltrane for the first time in years. I've never thought of myself as a "Coltrane" guy - probably because I'm definitely a Lee Konitz, Sonny Rollins guy, so traditionally your not supposed to be both. (what a ridiculous thought!) but i realized that i've listened to a ton of Coltrane in my life, and I love him!  Sometimes jazz education gets in the way of my enjoyment, which is a shame, because i am an educator as well as a player. Jazz education never shuts up about Coltrane. but you know why? because John Coltrane rules! 

I think that subversive/punk rock part of me was drawn to jazz at first - only me and a few kids were into it in high school (also why I got into skateboarding I guess) and I kind of dug that.  And now that i’m a full fledged jazz musician that same part of me wants to ignore the collective jazz consciousness at times or something.  What’s my problem? just listen to “a love supreme” - there’s a reason no one shuts up about it! it’s an amazing record! 

....and “kind of blue” totally rules, too!! 

udden out."

    This is not a good way to interact with your fans and audience. Your blog is not clear. It looks like a part of an article because it is very difficult to understand. The same thing is with [URL=http://www.cpmhomework.com/]cpmhomework.com[/URL] because it is very difficult to understand that how they progress so much in a little time. Their work is appreciatable and they deserve this. You should review your blog.

    Here the blogger asked that when he listens to he John Coltrane, he feels that his nature as a boy is changing which is totally fake. He just wrote the article while there is no truth behind this. How is possible that we can think so after listening to cafdn the Coltrane music. Also if you feel so then you should try to control your emotions which make ask you to think so. Listen to the music just for relaxation, not for the feelings. If you listen to the music just for relaxation, then it will sound good for you.
