Muriel Grossmann Profiled

There is perhaps no greater influence in jazz than John Coltrane, the North Carolina-born saxophonist whose pensive style traversed many subgenres. Over the course of his career, which included 25 albums as a bandleader and another 59 as a sideman to Miles Davis, Thelonious Monk and others, Coltrane quietly shifted the landscape. His sound rippled across the world; some 50 years after his death, he’s on the Mount Rushmore of Black Improvisational Music.

It’s not surprising, then, that Coltrane permeates the work of Muriel Grossmann, a Barcelona-based saxophonist whose new album, Quiet Earth, is the latest in a string of impressive records she’s released since 2007.
