If Miles Davis' 'Kind of Blue' is the first jazz album you should be introduced to, Giant Steps should be the second. Giant Steps has become as much a template for jazz as it is an album, as it contains many groundbreaking advancements in the jazz genre such as Coltrane's now-trademark melodic phrasing and third-related chord movements. The title track itself has become a jazz standard with his erratic, but precise playing style. Other tracks like 'Countdown' and 'Spiral' also makes this record a bold statement in hard bop improvisation, yet 'Naima' provides a stark contrast to the rest of the album, as it crafts poetry that is too beautiful for words. With Giant Steps, Coltrane was able to craft his first solo masterpiece that embodies a myriad of impressions and atmospheres.

One of the best, and especially great for those looking to delve deeper into the genre. You'll be bopping and tapping like a lunatic to this one.

Phenomenal line-up as well, fyi.
