Yesterday the 23 Septem
ber was the anniversary of the legendary John Coltrane's birthday. To celebrate this fact the talented Blackclassical released another epic mix dedicated to the great man. I posted his last effort released in 2010 which I still regard as the best mix/podcast I've ever heard.
