[ Listen to the episode ]

Musician and educator Lewis Porter is one of the real authorities when it comes to John Coltrane. Having written the definitive bio on the famous saxophonist (John Coltrane-His Life and Music), Lewis' vast knowledge balances both the music and human sides of Trane in great detail. On this episode, Lewis highlights the early part of Trane's recording career on Prestige and later on, he comments on the track "Psalm" which is guaranteed to have people talking. Throughout the production of the Traneumentary, Lewis has served as an invaluable resource in the development of this series.
