Ben Ratliff, in ‘Chasing the Trane’ (2016)

“For [John] Coltrane I think there was a pattern of doing something that is unexpected when you look at what came before it. So he would do something that would trip himself up, so he could figure out what to do next; and that sense of struggle and thinking through the next problem propelled him, and made him keep getting better and stronger, and more interesting and challenging. “
