John Coltrane - Giant Steps [60th Anniversary 2020 Deluxe Edition]
Legendary stuff from 'Trane, laying down the giant leaps in sound often imitated, but never bettered in over six decades.
John Coltrane is one of the most renowned jazz artists and influential saxophonists in music history.
Within the span of less than three weeks, John Coltrane completed his work with Miles Davis on what would become the bestselling jazz title in history ('Kind of Blue') and embarked on his first record with Atlantic that would become the landmark recording 'Giant Steps'.
2020 marks the 60th anniversary of 'Giant Steps'. 'Giant Steps' was selected by the Library of Congress in 2004 to be added to the National Recording Registry.
'Giant Steps' attained U.S. gold record status in 2018, with over 500,000 units sold.

Alongside a weekly playlist of new and old tracks (tune in via the news section), all of the Drift staff also contribute to a weekly 'Drift Recommends' playlist.
Updated every Friday, it's full of new tracks that we love, absolute bangers that have popped back into our heads and all sorts of other weird avenues. It is supposed to sound a little bit like that feeling of walking through the door at Drift.
