“This is the best thing I’ve ever played on a guitar,” he says.
“And I play the guitar well.”
The song’s origins are murky.
It comes from a 1960s British radio broadcast that featured a woman in a flower skirt dancing to an old jazz tune called “Cherry Blossom”.
The song has long been associated with British folk-rockers such as Jimi Hendrix and Miles Davis, but it was popularised by jazz guitarist John Coltrane, who was famous for his ability to play in a variety of styles.
Coltrane recorded a version of the tune in 1963 and played it live at the Newport Folk Festival.
“The first time I heard the song, I thought it was a bad idea,” Coltranes wife, Janis Coltrans, says.
“It sounded like it was coming out of some sort of music box.
It sounded like a blues song.
And then I heard it, and I said, ‘That’s it.
I’m going to take it up with John Coltane.'”
But that was just my initial reaction, so I just didn’t play it again.
But he was a huge influence on me, so we got together and he played it to me and I just played it again.
“The original version of “Jingle Bell” has been played for more than three decades, with a host of musicians, including Bob Dylan, Paul Simon, Johnny Cash, George Harrison and Elvis Presley, all using it.”
I started to notice the similarities between the original Jingle-Bell song and the modern versions,” Coltanes wife says.
The song was also played on the ABC’s Radio Australia program, and the song was featured in an episode of the hit TV series The X Factor in 2011.”
He’s a very humble guy, and he knows he’s got this music coming to him, and you know that this is going to be big,” Colteranes wife adds.”
There’s a certain quality that you don’t get from most people, especially if they’ve never heard it.
They can’t play guitar or they can’t sing it.””
I think there’s a real joy to him that he’s making something for people, and that he understands the significance of the song.
“Coltranes’ wife says she believes it is a sign of the times, and she believes the song will become even more popular.”
If I could take it back to the time of John Colts father, who’s now a great musician and a great singer and producer, I would,” she says.
