Giant Steps is one of my favorite hard bop'n albums. The title track is a great example of how tight one band can be. The tempo is fast and Coltrane never lets up the whole time. The whole album is like this and the bonus tracks offer a little bit of variation with an extra solo on the Countdown one. I'd still rather get the LP though. If anyone is new to Coltrane and Hard Bop look no further. This was when he was just hitting his prime and becoming a true leader, in my opinion.
