Jazz on the Tube
The Internet's jazz video search engine
Broadcast live in 1965
One of the most beautiful ballads of the post-bop era, Naima.
Written by John Coltrane for his then-wife Juanita Naima Grubs. (Glad he named the tune after her middle name!)
Coltrane recorded it a lot: First on Giant Steps and also on Live! at the Village Vanguard, The Complete Copenhagen Concert, Afro-Blue Impressions, and Live at the Village Vanguard Again!.
Along with Giant Steps, Naima is a core jazz standard.
John Coltrane, sax
McCoy Tyner, piano
Elvin Jones, drums
Jimmy Garrison, bass
