    I did ponder watching that, but noticed that the guests included Bill Clinton and a few others which made me ponder if it'd be worth it.

    On a Coltrane tip, though, and very much in the spirit of gjw, there's a new album coming out from Finnish saxophonist Eero Koivistoinen, who sounds remarkably like Coltrane. I didn't know him well, so I was surprised to discover is himself over 70 now.


    I like this, also.

    Yes, RIP to a true great.

    Would I be right in assuming that his ‘Promises’ collaboration with Floating Points was his last recorded work? If so, what a way to go out.

    Gilles Peterson, a huge fan, currently dedicating a lot of time to sharing Sanders’ work on his 6Music show which is about to end. Well worth catching again.

    I’m watching ‘Chasing ‘Trane - A John Coltrane Documentary’ on Sky Arts right now and it’s very good indeed. I only get to watch the channel via Freeview but if you have a Sky subscription I recommend anyone watch this through the catch up platform.
