Story

When I first decided to use this song in the project I intended to sing my lyrics, which were approved by the Coltrane family. However, a week before the recording I was told that one of the members of the family had changed their mind. Since I originally learned this song without lyrics I decided to make it a vocal instrumental piece adding layers of my voice to create the concept of my lyrics that referenced the sea with waves rushing to the shore.
