Afro Blue Tab
AFRO BLUE - John Coltrane  (originally by Mongo Santamaria)
This is the theme for Afro Blue. I tabbed it out from the Coltrane version
Live at the Birdland. It's basically just a theme all in the F natural minor
scale. There is alot of room for little hammerons and other nice things to
really bring out the power of this simple tune.
Oh yeah, its in 6/8 time.

About the artist behind Afro Blue Tab:

John William Coltrane (September 23, 1926 in Hamlet, North Carolina — July 17, 1967 at Huntington Hospital in Long Island, NY) was an American jazz saxophonist and composer. Born in Hamlet, North Carolina, Coltrane grew up in High Point, North Carolina and moved to Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in June 1943. He was inducted into the Navy in 1945 and returned to civilian life in 1946. Coltrane worked a variety of jobs through the late forties until he joined Dizzy Gillespie's big band in 1949 as an alto saxophonist. He stayed with Gillespie through the band's breakup in May 1950 and, now on tenor saxophone, worked with Gillespie's small group until April 1951, when he returned to Philadelphia to go to school.

In early 1952, Coltrane joined Earl Bostic's band. In 1953, after a stint with Eddie Vinson, he joined Johnny Hodges's small group during Hodges's short sabbatical from Duke Ellington's orchestra, staying until mid 1954.

Throughout his career Coltrane's music took on an increasingly spiritual dimension that would color his legacy. His conception of expression in jazz became increasingly mystical, gnostic and cathartic.[citation needed]

Coltrane received a posthumous Special Citation from the Pulitzer Prize Board in 2007 for his "masterful improvisation, supreme musicianship and iconic centrality to the history of jazz."
