    This is a brief look at John Coltrane's life told in short sporadic bursts that flit in a nonlinear way through the events history and records that he witnessed and experienced This kind of jazz? storytelling is interesting but could have been just as effective if his story had been told in a cradle to grave style of most biographiesThe main problem with the book is its silence It's a comic book about one of the great
