Equinox!

March 20 - The Vernal Equinox and the first day of spring! To celebrate we are playing John Coltrane'sEquinox.Equinoxwas written for the autumnal equinox which happens in September around John Coltrane's birthday. We are playing it from March 20-22 because it's a brilliant tune and we just cant wait until September. We'll be playing it again on the autumnal Equinox.  

The spring and fall equinoxes happen when the plane of the earth's equator passes the center of the sun causing both the northern and southern hemispheres to be equally illuminated.
