The Most Feared Song in Jazz, Explained

John Coltrane, one of jazz historyís most revered saxophonists, released ďGiant StepsĒ in 1959. Itís known across the jazz world as one of the most challenging compositions to improvise over for two reasons - itís fast and itís in three keys. Braxton Cook and Adam Neely give me a crash course in music theory to help me understand this notoriously difficult song, and Iím bringing you along for the ride. Even if you donít understand a lick of music theory, youíll likely walk away with an appreciation for this musical puzzle.

1. Such a great tune

by an incredible musician.

I actually was thinking Donna Lee, not because of the changes but the speed. I have seen/heard many go down on that one, lol.
