'This is how you create a signature sound': John Coltrane's My Favorite Things

It's Black Music Month! On this special throwback edition of Milestones, we're going deep into the archives to the very first episode, never released on WBGO Studios until now. Our special guest Marcus Strickland, is a two-time GRAMMY®-nominated saxophonist, producer, multi-instrumentalist, and prolific composer. He joins us to discuss a fan favorite, John Coltrane's My Favorite Things. We delve into Coltrane’s popular hit, as well as an in-depth conversation about the soprano saxophone, the true art of production, and why McCoy Tyner deserves all of the praise in the world.

Milestones theme produced by Riley K. Glasper
