Chord progression for Irving Berlin's Russian Lullaby. This rendition is presented at 360 beats per minute, the tempo at which John Coltrane performed it on his Soultrane album. That was the first time he made a recording in the style that was later labelled "sheets of sound". Coltrane's joked that he played this so fast because it was a "rushin lullaby".
