20TH CENTURY MASTERWORKS

John Coltrane

Giant Steps

    "The idea of an LP as a single aesthetic unit, pioneered by Frank Sinatra and a few others, was still relatively new at the time. Not the least of Coltrane's achievements was to harness the long player's potential and to give it near perfect, lastingly satisfying content. This is one of the great modern records." - Penguin Guide To Jazz

    "Since its release in 1960, the fascination with Giant Steps has never wavered. This is a true masterpiece that should be in everyone's collection." - DownBeat

    Thelonious Monk

    Monk's Music

      Monk’s Music’ the classic 1957 album by the Thelonious Monk Septet + 2 bonus tracks.

      Contains new specially prepared liner notes by Penguin Guide To Jazz writer Brian Morton, and by Paris’ prestigious Jazz Magazine.

      “But the album title really goes further than that. This is Thelonious Monk’s music in the most complete sense. These sessions have been particularly valued for the presence of Coleman Hawkins and John Coltrane, two saxophone giants from different generations.

      Some accounts of the recordings devote more space to the horns than to the leader. So, listen carefully to how humbly Coltrane plays on “Ruby My Dear”. He was still an emerging artist, to be sure, but his command of the instrument was complete, and he didn’t usually play with this reserve. Hawkins, by contrast, is determined to make his presence felt. He even comes in at the wrong place a couple of times.” Brian Morton
