Grade 7 Up-An intriguing, accessible look at the jazz great's life and music, with an introduction by Branford Marsalis that provides a good overview of Coltrane's influence on his peers and on contemporary musicians. In addition to the biographical information, Selfridge provides background information on jazz and a brief critical analysis of his subject's music. The author has a clear and lively writing style that will draw in readers, but the lack of source notes for the numerous quotations and dialogue is troubling. The black-and-white photographs and selected list of Coltrane's recordings add to the book's appeal. The list of material for further information includes videos and Internet sites. John Coltrane fills a gap in the existing literature on jazz for young adults. Despite the lack of documentation, it will be appreciated by jazz fans and students doing reports.
