John Coltrane and the impression he made on our guest blogger Geert Hurenkamp
Much can be said and written about John Coltrane. Not so coincidentally (more about that later), I stumbled upon a Dutch TV item (Podium Witteman, from 37:16, in Dutch) about the phenomenon of ‘standards’ (both in classical and contemporary music) and My Favorite Things was discussed by show host Paul Witteman and regular guest contributor and composer Mike Boddé.

My first contribution to this site is about a remarkable saxophonist , good friend and fellow member of The Jazz Appreciation Society. This blog post is about Ties Mellema.
