In league with A Love Supreme and his interpretation of Sound Of Music-classic My Favorite Things, third key title for John Coltrane. He turned it into a standard. Coltrane's example was westcoast latin jazz bandleader Cal Tjader, who had Willie Bobo as a percussionist, Armando Peraza (later with Santana) on conga and the Cuban bongo player Mongo Santamaria.
