John Coltrane Signed Scarce Portrait of the Free Jazz Pioneer

15 Mar

Saxophonist, band leader, and composer (1926–1967) whose brilliant improvisatory skills and experimental spirit made him one of the most influential and highly regarded musicians in the history of jazz. After playing tenor and soprano sax with Dizzy Gillespie, Miles Davis, and Thelonious Monk, he led his own groups and made such classic recordings as ‘Giant Steps,’ ‘My Favorite Things,’ and ‘A Love Supreme.’ He died of liver cancer at the age of 41. Vintage glossy 8 x 10 publicity photo of Coltrane outdoors, signed in the lower border in black ballpoint, “Thank you, John Coltrane.” In fine condition. This particular image was used as the cover image for his album A Love Supreme. Coltrane is extremely scarce in any autographed material, particularly in signed photos. Pre-certified Roger Epperson/REAL and RR Auction COA. Learn more about Larry Rafferty.
