About the Song
Lazy Bird is a musical composition by John Coltrane, first appearing on his 1957 album Blue Train. Its name is most likely a play on the title of the Tadd Dameron composition "Lady Bird"; Coltrane biographer Lewis Porter has proposed a harmonic relationship between "Lady Bird" and the A section of "Lazy Bird". (The bridge of Coltrane's song is apparently a variation on the standard, "Lover Man"). The chord progression of "Lady Bird" may be transformed into that of Lazy Bird" through chord substitution using the backdoor progression and tritone substitution[1]. The A section of "Lazy Bird" also features two tonal centers a major third apart, an idea that would later be expanded into what are known as Coltrane changes.

About the Artist
John William Coltrane (September 23, 1926 – July 17, 1967)[1] was an American jazz saxophonist and composer. Starting in bebop and hard bop, Coltrane later pioneered free jazz. He influenced generations of other musicians, and remains one of the most significant tenor saxophonists in jazz history. He was astonishingly prolific: he made about fifty recordings as a leader in his twelve-year-long recording career, and appeared as a sideman on many other albums, notably with trumpeter Miles Davis. As his career progressed, Coltrane's music took on an increasingly spiritual dimension. His second wife was pianist Alice Coltrane, and their son Ravi Coltrane is also a saxophonist. He 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."
