In this lecture we look at the music of John Coltrane style and how it influenced post-Coltrane saxophonists as they developed their own creative approaches to improvising. To do this, improvisations by Coltrane, Dave Liebman and Jerry Bergonzi on the jazz standard, “On Green Dolphin Street,” are compared and contrasted. We will listen to rare recordings of each

saxophonist playing this piece and examine transcriptions of their solos. These recordings and transcriptions tell a fascinating story about contemporary jazz improvising, about how Coltrane’s playing changed it, and about how it continues to grow through the exciting work of today’s saxophonists.

This lecture is based on Dr Andy Sugg’s book “The Influence of John Coltrane’s

Music on Improvising Saxophonists”.
