Giant Steps

John Coltrane's solo on his 1959 recording of Giant Steps is an acknowledged classic. Here are three different homages via YouTube.

First, a scroll through the transcribed solo as the recording plays.


Second, a robot programmed to play the solo.


Lastly, a virtuoso performance of a gentleman playing along with Trane's recording on piano and bass guitar simulataneously!
