Equinox
John Coltrane Lyrics


Meet me on the Equinox
Meet me half way
When the sun is perched at it's highest peek
In the middle of the day

Let me give my love to you
Let me take your hand
As we walk in the dimming light
Or darling understand
That everything, everything ends
That everything, everything ends

Meet me on your best behavior
Meet me at your worst
For there will be no stone unturned
Or bubble left to burst

Let me lay beside you, Darling
Let me be your man
And let our bodies intertwine
But always understand

That everything, everything ends
That everything, everything ends
That everything, everything, everything ends

A window
An opened tomb
The sun crawls
Across your bedroom
A halo
A waiting room
Your last breaths
Moving through you

As everything, everything ends
As everything, everything ends
As everything, everything, everything
Everything, everything, everything ends

Meet me on the Equinox
Meet me half way
When the sun is perched at it's highest peek
In the middle of the day

Let me give my love to you
Let me take your hand
As we walk in the dimming light
Or darling understand

That everything, everything ends

Writer(s): John Coltrane

CELEBRATING JOHN COLTRANE


Today, Monday September 23, 2019, marks the 93rd birthday of the legendary jazz saxophonist, composer and bandleader, John William Coltrane.
Today also marks the equinox, which is defined as the instant in time when the plane of the equator passes through the centre of the Sun.
So in keeping with that astronomical event, it makes perfect sense for us to again listen to Coltrane's composition, "Equinox", which he recorded in 1960, and which so happens to be one of my very favourite jazz tunes.
The tune was in fact named by Coltrane's wife, Naima, signifying the fact that Coltrane's birth coincided with the autumnal equinox in 1926.
"Equinox" is a minor blues played in C# with a slow swing tempo.
It allows both Coltrane and pianist McCoy Tyner to demonstrate their creative and artistic expression.


Listen critically and enjoy.

Beebop blues jazz
This style of rifting and artfully telling stories black feelings n thoughts experiences thru evolved smaller group bands shares ambitions n setbacks joys n mistreatment goals n setbacks all along this beautiful air bubble called life
Long live the human spirit in blues n jazz n all art forms
Long live this nation of laws n its gradual strength to improve for all ethnic groups
Long live the embraced music of Coltrane Miles Mingus

Just a heart felt thanks from a mellow old white guy to John, Miles, Dave Brubeck, and Thelonius Monk, and so many others from those painful, but magical times. Your life experience was so different from mine, but your music helped save my sanity, and many others. It kept us from slipping into darkness, from the affects, of life. Despite the egos, competition, addictions, mistakes, injustices, and deaths, your magical sounds were, and still are a light house, an anchor in the lonely cosmos. How deeply we all miss you pricks. You shouldn't have bailed on us so soon. The party was just getting started.
Thank you for sharing a piece of your souls with us.

A light year is a lot of miles. There was only one on Kind Of Blue and only one tenor.

@Peter Mullen You sound painfully condescending. I'm pretty sure many of the musicians you revere would qualify as neanderthal bacteria in your mind, if you knew nothing about their music. And bombing out cliches does not make you better than anyone, in fact.
