"A fine overview of Coltrane's career for the uninitiated and plenty of lesser-known facts for fans. Scheinfeld balances Coltrane's biography with explanations of his musical innovations, showing how they were intertwined. Coltrane found his voice in '57 when he quit heroin and began to articulate his spiritual side." (Chicago Reader)
