“Lazy Bird” is a tune written by the great tenor saxophonist and jazz icon John Coltrane. It was first heard on his hit record “Blue Train”.
Many believe this tune is a reference to Tadd Dameron’s “Lady Bird”.
Be sure to check out the coda at the end. Sometimes this is overlooked but do not be fooled, this is a part of the tune. There is some debate regarding the first two chords of the coda, but we have included two sets referenced from recordings and common charts.
