I generally donít like saxophone or piano, but when I started a vinyl collection two musicians stand as my favourites: John Coltrane and Red Garland.

Iím currently making a very slow review of late 1950s and early 1960s jazz and recently discovered Grant Green and before that Wes Montgomery. I think Coltrane was a huge influence - he was spontaneous and a natural. When guitarists followed him it was an explosion of creativity.

I now look at 1963 and Beatlemania not so favourably.
