Before John Was a Jazz Giant: A Song of John Coltrane

Author: Carole Boston Weatherford, Sean Qualls
Publisher: Henry Holt & Company

Young John Coltrane was all ears. And there was a lot to hear growing up in the South in the 1930s: preachers praying, music on the radio, the bustling of the household. These vivid noises shaped John’s own sound as a musician. Carole Boston Weatherford and Sean Qualls have composed an amazingly  rich hymn to the childhood of jazz legend John Coltrane.
