John Coltrane

John Coltrane enlisted in the Navy on August 6th, 1945. Not that he knew it, but it turned out to be a historical day as it was the day that America dropped the atomic bomb on Hiroshima. He then moved to Pearl Harbor with his unit and became a member of the swing band called the “Melody Masters”. Sadly he died when he was just 40 years old and until this day is considered one of the most significant saxophonists in music history.
