John Coltrane – Giant Steps
A remastered, deluxe 2-LP with the original album plus a bonus disc of alternate takes and versions - including rehearsal and incomplete tracks, as well as false starts - only previously included in The Heavyweight Champion: The Complete Atlantic Recordings of John Coltrane boxed set. This 2-LP configuration features a 12" x 12" 12pp booklet, packaged in a replica of the original 1969 stereo pressing, with a 12" x 12" album cover insert included.
Coltrane's groundbreaking Atlantic Records debut, this 1959 release was possibly the most consistently outstanding tenor solo statement since Sonny Rollins' Saxophone Colossus. Here Coltrane's phenomenal vision and technique shone with spellbinding power, framed exquisitely by the sheer authority of a superb rhythm section.
