    • It is amazing. “Naima” is a very beautiful ballad made up of rich chords. Coltrane’s performance of “Naima” displayed his genius melodic phrasing that came to be known as sheets of sound, and features John’s explorations into third-related chord movements which is now known as Coltrane changes.
