John Coltrane was born in Hamlet, North Carolina, on September 1926. He and his family moved to Philly and there, John took up E-flat alto horn, clarinet, and saxophone during high school. He pursued his music studies at Granoff Studios and Ornstein School of Music, also in Philadelphia, and played his first professional job in 1945. He was a leading jazz musician during his time, not only because of imaginative and technical abilities, but also because he was one of the most advanced in the genre. His passion was in things all musicians and music lovers knew were breaking new ground.
