John Coltrane: An Animated Interview

Whoa, this had been in my feed a couple of times today. What a gem! I’m a sucker for interviews[^-361149509] and having it packed in such a nice animation… Just wow!

One afternoon in November 1966, Frank Kofsky took the train out to Long Island. He was about to spend the day with John Coltrane. Kofsky brought his tape recorder and what we get to hear is the conversation the two men had as they drove through town and made a few stops along the way.

Read more about this rare interview on Blank on Blank. There you can find more info about Coltrane, the interview (including a transcript), quotes as well as listen to the full interview. How great is that?!
