transcription and analysis by David Demsey

It had long been believed that Coltrane's "Giant Steps" existed in only two takes until 1995, when seven more astonishing takes from those two sessions were discovered in the vaults of Altantic Records (and later released on Rhino Records). This book contains all 96 choruses from all seven takes and includes analysis, historical background, and previously unpublished photos from the period.
