Giants of Jazz: Thelonious Monk and John Coltrane



Listen to this week’s show!

For this special American Routes program, we follow the lives of two giants of jazz: Thelonious Monk and John Coltrane. From their humble North Carolina beginnings to their triumphs on the world stage, we’ll trace their individual and inspired paths to creativity. And we’ll visit with the musicians who played with the greats, including McCoy Tyner and Pharoah Sanders, and the next generation, TS Monk and Ravi Coltrane.

I am listening to this now and I have to tell you, this is as good as it gets for an in depth look at Monk and Coltrane, if you have any interest in jazz listen to this wonderful show.
