Giant Steps – Animated

John Coltrane

Read along

Whether you can read music or not, you can read along with this and gain further appreciation for Coltrane’s artistry.

This is one tune every tenor player must master.

A great use of video and YouTube.

Huge props to Dan Cohen who had the idea and made it happen. (It cannot have been easy.)

A note from Dan: “The transcription for the head is transposed for C and the solo’s in Bb. Weird, I know, but the transcription book that I based this animation on was in concert.”

Thanks Dan!
