The Guide to Getting into John Coltrane’s Quasi-Religious Ecstasy 

Source: Noisey.

The music of John William Coltrane wasn’t just a mere passion for his loyal fans; it was a religious experience. Doors drummer John Densmore said he can still feel the energy Coltrane poured into his live performances, an energy he’d never felt before and hasn’t since. His shows became something of a holy ritual for his most passionate stans, who developed a cult-like devotion to their “jazz messiah,” as the historical marker on his birthplace in Hamlet, North Carolina, proclaims him to be. Since his death in 1967, the worship of Coltrane has gone from metaphoric to literal, as he’s been ordained by the Saint John Coltrane African Orthodox Church.
