Coltrane's Atlantic Records debut, Giant Steps introduced the tenor saxophonist to a wider audience and became a great leap forward for jazz in general and for 'Trane in particular. Unyielding, driving power yields to delicate, beautiful moments. This CD is full of alt takes of the seven compositions ("Niama" and "Countdown" are the most famous among them).
