The appeal of Miles Davis and John Coltrane

I love music. All kinds of music, from rock to disco to country to classical to jazz. I'm trying to build up my jazz collection and I've picked up some Miles Davis and John Coltrane. My question is this: I don't understand the love that many people have for electric Davis (I've listened to many of his electric works, but I'm specifically referring to A Tribute to Jack Johnson) and Coltrane's A Love Supreme. While the music (usually) isn't hard on the ears, I simply don't hear what people find so attractive about these two artists. Explain.

What is frim fram sauce?

I'm sure many of you are familiar with that jazz staple The Frim Fram Sauce. Can anybody tell me what frim fram sauce is, as well as what "shifafa" and "aussen fay" (oss and fey?) might be?
