Giant Steps Super Deluxe 2020 edition

Recommended Posts

For such a historic session, fans will want every bit of music, especially complete alternate takes. False starts on the other hand much are less interesting, when they don't include a solo. Most of the bonus material had already been released in the "Heavyweight Champion" box set from 1995.


I don't think a high res release and yet another remaster is really worth it for this album, since these Coltrane Atlantic sessions don't sound that great, compared to other recordings from around the same time (on Columbia, Blue Note, Impulse!, etc). Bass is very muddy, no upper treble, even some distortion (the Trane & Bags session)


At least this reissue seems to come from the original session tapes, unlike other Atlantic albums for which the original tapes were burnt in a 1978 warehouse fire
