No tenor player cast a larger shadow over the 1960's than John Coltrane. Arguably, that time frame could be expanded to include all decades since, as well. Several contemporary tenor players who emerged as singular and important voices in the 1960s were specifically in his debt: his friend and colleague -Wayne Shorter, his protégé —Archie Shepp, his band mate—Pharoah Sanders, and his disciple—Charles Lloyd. Each in his own way, reflected Trane's characteristic tenor sound, his spirituality, his harmonic adventurism and his perpetual searching. Tenor players from The School of Trane in the next hour of Jazz at 100.
