Coltrane for Kids...

For all you Coltrane devotees, my newest book--"Spirit Seeker - John Coltrane's Musical Journey" (Houghton Mifflin Harcourt)--debuts in October. The book captures John's struggle from lost boy to musical leader, from darkness to light. In words and images that reflect the depth of Coltrane's joy as well as his deep yearning for inner peace, Spirit Seeker tells the story of how art and spirituality shaped one man's talents and gave him the courage to share those gifts with the world. It's a uniquely American tale that touches on race, jazz, religion and redemption (from addiction), the power of Art, and how John's early difficulties fueled his unique vision of the Divine (A Love Supreme).
Like my previous books on Jimi Hendrix (Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, NY Times bestseller) and Bob Dylan (Little, Brown), Spirit Seeker is meant to introduce a new generation of listeners to a great musical creator and his story. I hope you'll check it out, and/or visit me at . Thanks! GARY
