A quote from Coltrane which nicely sums up his goals:

“I want to be a force for real good. In other words. I know that there are bad forces, forces that bring suffering to others and misery to the world, but I want to be the opposite force. I want to be the force which is truly for good”  — JOHN COLTRANE (1966 interview with Frank Kofsky)

Admission is free.
