It doesnt matter where you are now, sooner or later youre going to want to go somewhere else. It's the nature of this Info Highway, travelled by the short-attention-spanned... So here are a few other destinations which might prove rewarding. This list was updated, a little, when during our Spring 2000 house cleaning, and everything should still be valid. But you never know. And inevitably we've missed something important (send an email and we'll add it next time)
John Coltrane - related
Keith Severson hasn't touched his comprehensive Coltrane page in quite a while (we can empathize with that), but it remains a comprehensive list of Coltrane information. The title of the Index page is A Love Supreme.

down beat Magazine (see magazines, below), has a Coltrane section: DownBeatJazz.com: John Coltrane (the index page for the Coltrane section)

Coda Magazine, which has gone its own consistent way since 1958 under the guidance of John Norris and Bill Smith, now has a Web page.
