Jazz in the Shadows

Two jazz musicians who spent much of their respective careers in the shadows died this weekend: saxophonist, Michael Brecker, and pianist, Alice Coltrane. The shadow cast over Brecker depended on the session—notwisthstanding his solo-work, Brecker spent much of his life in the studio, in support of everyone from Aerosmith to Zappa—while the shadow cast over Coltrane was, of course, her husband's.

Listen to Alice Coltrane here.
