Two religious musicians.
Whose frequent subject, explicitly, was God.

Both known for marathon virtuoso improvisations of matchless intensity.

Both possessors of an inimitable sound.

Devoting their lives to making manifest the fathomless knowably unknowable God-in-Sound.
Both died young.

John Coltrane (1926 - 1967)

Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan
(1948 - 1997)
