Giant Steps (60th Anniversary Deluxe Edition)


Coltrane is one of the most renowned jazz artists and influential saxophonists in music history. Within the span of less than three weeks, he completed his work with Miles Davis on what would become the bestselling jazz title in history (Kind of Blue) and embarked on his first record with Atlantic that would become the landmark recording Giant Steps. 2020 marks the 60th anniversary of Giant Steps.

A remastered, deluxe 180g 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.’ Also features a 12” x 12” 12 paged booklet, packaged in a replica of the original 1969 stereo pressing, with a 12” x 12” album cover insert included.
