“While it’s true that to musicians especially, Coltrane’s fiercely adventurous harmonic imagination is the most absorbing aspect of his developing style, the more basic point is that for many non-musician listeners, Coltrane at his best has an unusually striking emotional impact.” – Nat Hentoff, original liner notes for Giant Steps (1960)

You can tag this LP as one of the important ones. – Ralph Gleason, Down Beat (1960)

Everyone, even those who have had reservations about Coltrane, should hear this set. – Mait Edey, The Jazz Review (1960)

History will undoubtedly enshrine this disc as a watershed the likes of which may never truly be appreciated. – Lindsay Planer, AllMusic

John Coltrane’s Giant Steps – the influential jazz saxophonist’s first album with Atlantic Records – continues to astound and inspire listeners 60 years after its release. Consistently lauded in music histories, Giant Steps was inducted into the Grammy® Hall of Fame in 2001 and went gold in 2018. To celebrate this seminal album’s six-decade anniversary, Rhino has remastered Giant Steps and all 28 of its surviving sessions outtakes for two new collections.
