In My Time Machine: John Coltrane – Equinox

To celebrate the fall equinox today, the official end of summer, and the birthday of a Jazz legend tomorrow, I can think of no better way than with Coltrane’s classic, Equinox, off his “Coltrane’s Sound” album. It was named by his wife, Naima, given that in the year it was recorded (1960, although officially released 4 years later) the fall equinox was one day after Coltrane’s birthday (September 23, 1926). The song has a rather bluesy vibe and creates an atmosphere of mystery. Definitely one of the songs I play if I’m taking a long drive on a cool autumn night. So smooth and melodious. The track’s climactic solo actually comes from McCoy Tyner (another one of my favorites) as he effortlessly plays the piano. This is easily my favorite jazz track and I do hope you enjoy it as well.
