Chord changes for Billy Eckstine's ballad I Want To Talk About You. The John Coltrane Quartet liked to play this in 1963 and recorded several different live performances of it on "Live At Birdland", "Afro-Blue Impressions" and "Selflessness". In every performance, Coltrane would solo for five or six minutes accompanied by the rhythm section and then would end with an unaccompanied cadenza that would last for several minutes.
