Naima is a ballad composed by John Coltrane in 1959, and named after his then-wife, Juanita Naima Grubb. It first appeared on the album Giant Steps, and is notable for its use of a variety of rich chords over a bass pedal. The song is mainly made up of a slow, restrained melody, though there is also a brief piano solo. One of Coltrane's most famous songs, he recorded it numerous times; it may be found, among other albums, in Live! at the Village Vanguard .
