Lead sheet animation of Coltrane's performance of Giant Steps.
This animation is a good tool for learning improvisation.
John Coltrane was born in Hamlet, North Carolina, in 1926, and died in 1967.

Hey man, thanks a lot for sharing that Jazz video. I kind of got dizzy while watching it, but it's really cool to be able to watch along as Coltrane solos over Giant Steps.

Great Loved it. Just like Bram Stadhouder's songs this was some thing real. I am new fan of this kind of music...... I only listen to the ones which are trully experimental.... While ago I was listening to some collaborations of Bram Stadhouders and Jim Black which addicted me to this kind of music.

You will loveeeeeeeeeeeeeeee ittttttttttt!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Yes, this is one of the greatest.
I took it as a project to make a tune based on this.
i played with the timing (15/8) and rhythm... some slight progression changes but essentially the Giant Steps progression.
I currently dont have a lead guitar on the recording, but you'll get the idea and maybe get some ideas of your own.
Pls have a listen and tell me what you think.
