The John Coltrane Quartet with McCoy Tyner piano, Jimmy Garrison on bass and Elvin Jones drums.
Originally composed by Mongo Santamaria, Coltrane added to the harmonic complexity or the tune and Jones adapted the beat to a 3/4 jazz waltz rhythm (the same he and Jones used on "My Favorite Things.)
The tune, in its original rhythmic form was the first jazz standard built on an African 3:2 cross-rhythm.
