This Jazz Piano Tutorial is about John Coltrane's Sheets of Sound technique. The term Sheets of Sound was coined by music critic Ira Gitler in the liner notes for Coltrane album - Soultrane (1958). He used it to describe Coltrane’s improvisational style at the time.
This is one of the most highly underrated entries in Coltrane's voluminous catalog. So prolific were those recording dates, they informed no less than five different Coltrane albums on Atlantic. The title could not have been more accurate, as each of the six pieces bear the unmistakable and indelible stamp of Coltrane's early-'60s style
John William Coltrane (September 23, 1926 – July 17, 1967) was an American jazz saxophonist and composer. Working in the bebop and hard bop idioms early in his career, Coltrane helped pioneer the use of modes and was at the forefront of free jazz. He led at least fifty recording sessions and appeared on many albums by other musicians, including trumpeter Miles Davis and pianist Thelonious Monk. Over the course of his career, Coltrane's music took on an increasingly spiritual dimension

John Coltrane’s music can be broken into roughly 3 periods: Vertical (Sheets of Sound). Horizontal (Modal Jazz). Experimental (Free Jazz). And his Sheets of Sound technique falls into the Vertical period which was in the late 1950’s and can be found on albums like: Blue Train. Any other late 1950’s Coltrane album. As we covered in a previous lesson, to improvise vertically means to think in terms of chords and chord progressions – so your solo traces out each individual chord in the progression. While to improvise horizontally means to think in terms of scales, modes and keys – so your solo isn’t tracing out each individual chord, but rather you are just playing a particular scale over the entire progression. The end result can be very similar. A vertical solo can sound exactly the same as a horizontal solo – it’s just a different way of thinking about.
An album of previously unheard original compositions by the legendary jazz saxophonist has been discovered 55 years after its recording. Sonny Rollins, a peer of Coltrane’s and also regarded as one of the greatest jazz saxophonists of all time, described the discovery as like finding a new room in the Great Pyramid. Among the seven tracks are two completely unheard original compositions, called Untitled Original 11383 and Untitled Original 11386, both of which are played on soprano saxophone
John Coltrane's son Ravi Coltrane on the long-lost recording of his father's that is now seeing the light of day for the first time. The album features what’s considered to be John Coltrane’s classic quartet: McCoy Tyner on piano, Jimmy Garrison on bass and Elvin Jones on drums. The following year that same ensemble would record the Coltrane album most familiar to those who aren’t jazz aficionados, A Love Supreme, in the same room where the listening took place. As guests heard Both Directions, they sat facing the piano Tyner played on both recordings, drinking in the combination of familiar swing and unfamiliar solos and sounds.
