Paolo Parisi ✓ Coltrane DOC 'My music is the spiritual expression of what I am my faith my knowledge my being' John Coltrane rose from a hard and impoverished childhood in North Carolina to become one of the greatest jazz musicians of all time From session musician to band member of Charlie Parker Dizzy Gillespie and Miles Davis his raw talent and passion for experimenta The album Love Supreme is undoubtedly John Coltrane’s crown achievement and Paolo Parisi used its four piece suite structure as a foundation for his graphic novel biography ColtraneIt tells the story of one of the greatest Jazz musicians of all time starting from his humble beginnings – a deprived childhood spent among the cotton fields of North Carolina and then launching his career as a session musician in Philadelphia until eventually meeting and teaming up with Miles Davis Glimpses of Coltrane’s musical history alternate with scenes from his personal life meeting his first wife Naima the subseuent divorce meeting his second wife Alice McLeod not exactly in this order his battle with addiction and the birth of his children All this is peppered with uotes from interviews and articles set against the backdrop of a good chunk of 20th century American history; segregation civil rights movement Malcolm X Ku Klux Klan notably their bombing of the Sixteenth Street Baptist Church as John Coltrane dedicated a song to its victims Coltrane was not the one to stick to rules He constantly broke them pushed the boundaries and challenged his own creativity Parisi bows to that by mimicking jazz music and converting it into a graphic novel He abandons a pure chronological order in favour of using the division Coltrane invented for Love Supreme As a result the book is divided into four parts which mirror the four parts of Love Supreme ie ‘Acknowledgement’ ‘Resolution’ ‘Pursuance’ and ‘Psalm’ Parisi did his best to put jazz rhythm on the pages and if you tune in you will hear syncopation improvisation crescendo and decrescendoIf you know nothing about jazz and John Coltrane this book probably wouldn’t be the best introduction It relies too much on the reader’s understanding of jazz idiosyncrasies However if you are already a fan Coltrane offers a pleasant journey through time and soundoriginally published on wwwbookmunchwordpresscom
