Giant Steps - John Coltrane
Giant Steps: 60th Anniversary Deluxe Edition will be available as a 180-gram double-LP set and as a double-CD set. Both versions include the newly remastered version of the original album plus eight alternate takes.
The recordings come packaged in a replica of the original sleeve and labels used for the album's first stereo pressing, and the packages, each with a booklet, include photos, never-before-seen images of Atlantic Records ephemera, original liner notes, and new liner notes written by Grammy®-winning music historian, Ashley Kahn.
Giant Steps was recorded in 1959 at Atlantic Studios in New York City. The album features Coltrane on tenor saxophone, Paul Chambers on double bass, Tommy Flanagan on piano, and Art Taylor on drums on all songs except for "Naima," which features Jimmy Cobb on drums and Wynton Kelly on piano. It's extraordinary to note that Coltrane began principal recording sessions for Giant Steps less than two weeks after finishing his work with Miles Davis on Kind of Blue, which became the best-selling jazz album in history.
