Speaking of Coltrane: Five Conversations (3)

Alain Pacowski

Alain Pacowski is a French-born, French-accented jazz guitarist, who grew up in Biarritz, the son of a professional horn player, hearing jazz as the sound of America. He is, as I’ve said before, the most flattering of distant mirrors on our culture, and an obsessive devote of John Coltrane in particular. His taste is for that broad streak of gorgeousness in Coltrane, starting with “Bye Bye Blackbird” and culminating in his solo recording of “Lush Life.”

The conversation continues… If you feel a Coltrane sermon coming on, we want to hear it.
