John Coltrane was born 90 years ago, on Sept. 23, 1926. How will you honor the genius on this day? We are starting right now in absolute celebration of the composer/improviser's incendiary work with a constant stream of YouTube footage, a mixture of live and documentary videos. Saint Coltrane died in 1967, aged just 40 years old.
