Giant Steps was possibly Coltrane's most consistently outstanding tenor solo statementto date. Of course, Coltrane's own performance on Kind of Blue, just a month or two before, is now legendary, but on Miles Davis's album Coltrane had shared the glory with soloists of a similar calibre, and furthermore the present recording contained nothing but his own compositions.
