The Traneumentary: Joel Dorn

Producer, disc jockey, record executive and all around jazz authority Joel Dorn (aka The Masked Announcer) talks of Trane from his first hand accounts as a radio DJ in Philly, young producer at Atlantic Records and reissue producer (Anthology and The Heavyweight Champion). Joel gets right to the core of the matter with his discussion of Coltrane’s ascent with Giant Steps and My Favorite Things. He also describes the Coltrane Quartet “live” experience and what it was like attending the saxophonist’s funeral.

Excerpts featured in this episodes: “My Favorite Things,” “Village Blues,” “Giant Steps,” “Central Park West,” “Ole,” “Naima” and “Equinox.”
