Coltrane’s Tone

I’m listening to “A Love Supreme” right now. I love the things that John Coltrane creates in terms of improv and his writing can’t be appreciated enough. His tone always leaves me cold. Too bright. Too brittle sounding. His early work isn’t quite as creative but his tone is much better. His middle work is amazing but the tone leaves me cold. The last few years of stuff when he’s fully into “Free” jazz I still don’t enjoy.
