This is so cool. Here's a quote from the article:

Physicist and saxophonist Stephon Alexander has argued in his many public lectures and his book The Jazz of Physics that Albert Einstein and John Coltrane had quite a lot in common. Alexander in particular draws our attention to the so-called “Coltrane circle,” which resembles what any musician will recognize as the “Circle of Fifths,” but incorporates Coltrane’s own innovations.

Wow. I always loved Coltrane's music and knew that music is close to math, but Coltrane TRYING to emulate Einstein's theories? Edifying.
