On this day, June 17th in 1967, John Coltrane died at the of 40 from liver cancer at a hospital on Long Island. His death took many in the musical community by surprise as Coltrane kept his health condition private. Miles Davis said that “Coltrane’s death shocked everyone, took everyone by surprise. I knew he hadn’t looked too good. But I didn’t know he was that sick or even sick at all.” Coltrane’s funeral service was opened by the Albert Ayler Quartet and closed by the Ornette Coleman Quartet.

theparisreview:

“If the essence of jazz exists in the moment of performance, then much of the work of the jazz elegy is to make such music legible while also acknowledging the futility of such a project.”

We love Naomi Harris’s photos. We’ve been lucky enough to have her take pictures of a donut-slinging luchador & a party we threw for sheep & even an oyster on a road trip. She also has a thing with words and pictures about the buffets you find at swinger’s parties in the current issue. This isn’t a link to any of those things, but to a fine sheaf of photos of the wonderful strangeness of people she just published over at National Geographic.
