Linking Coltrane to Bernstein to Sibelius to Berg

Alex Ross on his blog: The Rest Is Noise, has an interesting audio demonstration of thematic linkage between John Coltrane's A Love Supreme and other celebrated musical masterworks. It just happens that two of the other three pieces which are used in the demonstration are also pieces where the saxophone is used, Leonard Bernstein's On The Town and Alban Berg's Lulu

How odd is that ? But at the same time so cool. 

Here's the link to the article: Sibelius and Coltrane on the town.
