When in doubt... go Coltrane.

Giant Steps (1960) is Coltrane's first album for the fat cats at Atlantic Records. This particular album  shines a  gigantic spotlight on Coltrane the composer. Giant Steps was the rocket ship that introduced Coltrane’s infamous "Sheets of Sound" and unique chord progressions that influenced his peers and future generations of musicians.
