Evolution: The Road to Giant Steps

Arguably the first of John Coltrane's great album masterpieces, 1960's Giant Steps hardly came out of nowhere, as this four-disc set clearly shows. Featuring key tracks with Coltrane working as both a bandleader and as a sideman in sessions with the likes of Miles Davis, Sonny Rollins, Thelonious Monk, Red Garland, Hank Mobley, and others recorded for the Prestige, Savoy, Columbia, and Blue Note labels between 1957 and 1960, plus some 40 minutes of radio and other interviews with the saxophonist, this fascinating collection culminates with the complete Giant Steps album from Atlantic Records.
