Added: 2008-06-26

John Coltrane first appears on record as a member of Dizzy Gillespie's big band, playing alto saxophone. He will stay with Gillespie until 1951, later doubling on tenor sax. During his tenure with Gillespie, Coltrane plays on George Russell's “Cubana-Be, Cubana-Bop,” one of the first modal recordings and also a landmark Latin jazz composition.
