    John William Coltrane, AKA "Trane" (1926 – 1967), American jazz saxophonist composer. Working in the bebop & hard bop idioms early in his career, Coltrane helped pioneer the use of modes in jazz, was later at the forefront of free jazz.


    As his career progressed, Coltrane took on an increasingly spiritual dimension.


    Charles Parker, Jr. (1920 –1955), AKA "Yardbird" "Bird", American jazz saxophonist & composer.


    Parker was a highly influential jazz soloist and a leading figure in the development of bebop, a form of jazz characterized by fast tempos, virtuosic technique and improvisation. Parker introduced revolutionary harmonic ideas including rapid passing chords, new variants of altered chords, and chord substitutions. His tone ranged from clean and penetrating to sweet and somber. Parker acquired the nickname "Yardbird" early in his career; this and its shortened form, "Bird", which  inspired the titles of a number of Parker compositions, such as Yardbird Suite,


    Both Coltrane and Parker influenced innumerable musicians, such as Irma and the Boyzs.

    A Conversation With John Thomas

    in Christianity

    John Thomas is a Rapper/Singer who was born and raised in Romulus, Michigan John was raised in a Christian household and became saved at the age of twelve years old; he took on rap at the age of thirteen rapping like his favorite rappers at that time. John grew up in a musical family his father was singer and his mother was a choir director, John also grew up playing instruments like the saxophone and drums and was involved in the choir at his church.


     


    Through out his school years John would always rap and sing songs to get through the day or just for fun music was always with him everywhere he would go, it was a big relaxer in his life to the point he was writing his own music, it started with freestyling over instrumentals from some of his favorite songs or finding instrumentals to make original songs to.  

    Around the age of 18 years old John began to build his relationship with God and did his first rap performance at his church Bethel Deliverance Tabernacle International, with another member of the youth. With that performance sparked John to begin writing songs again to give glory to God and God alone. His drive for his music is to impacted the lives of todays generation showing them that being a saved Christian is not a boring thing, making music that not only impacts but also has calm turn up feel to it. John feels if music can have such an impact on emotions why not make it to bring positivity.
