Originally published in 1971 as 'Black Nationalism And The Revolution In Music', and dedicated to both John Coltrane and Malcolm X, this expanded and revised edition contains the best-known interview with Coltrane as well as interviews with Elvin Jones and McCoy Tyner. Kofsky looks in depth at the classic Coltrane quartet, its anatomy and evolution, but also places the revolutionary 'new thing' music and ideas of Coltrane, Albert Ayler and others in a wider context of 60's radicalism, African-American politics and history.

An essential book for any serious fan of John Coltrane and the revolutionary jazz he inspired!
