“Central Park West” was written by the great tenor saxophonist John Coltrane. It was first recorded on his ground breaking 1964 record “Coltrane Sound”. This tune is an example of Coltrane’s further harmonic explorations that he began developing with “Giant Steps”. This ballad is a 20 bar form that cycles through multiple key centers: B major, F major, Ab major, D major.
