One of the last pieces to conclude the book is Herb O'Brien's heartfelt remembrance "Trane's Gone" after liver cancer ended his life at the much-too-early age of 40 on July 17, 1967. The two appendices are interviews taken after his death of people who knew him, childhood friend Franklin Brower and music teacher Isadore Granoff. They present their view of a younger Trane before these interviews and help create a fuller picture of the man's entire life.
DeVito does a supreme job creating this one-stop interview archive for fans that comes close to serving as a biography. Coltrane on Coltrane is well worth owning for those curious about the man behind the music.
