In the 60 years since John Coltrane's Giant Steps was released, the album has (justifiably) taken its place in the pantheon of classic albums. However, upon its release in early 1960, it was just the Atlantic Records debut of a hotshot saxophonist who had made a name for himself with Miles and Monk and recorded a few albums as a leader (and countless albums as a sideman) on Prestige. He was widely recognized as a technical talent, capable of dazzling and dizzying solos, but his compositional skills had only been showcased properly on one album: the (less justifiably) classic Blue Train, which was released in 1958 and was more clearly related to the hard bop of the day. Now, with a multi-year contract with Atlantic in hand, Coltrane was able to focus his label debut on his own material, positioning himself as a mature, confident, and singular artist, rather than as a gunslinger-for-hire. Everything on Giant Steps is a Coltrane composition, with a deep focus on harmony, phrasing, and melody. The album is intensely inventive from a structural standpoint—it's here that the "Giant Steps" chord progression (a.k.a. "the Coltrane Changes") makes its debut, as does the soon-to-be Coltrane standard "Naima," the themes of which would make their way into some of his most experimental and free-flowing future concerts. There's also plenty of blues ("Cousin Mary"), bouncing blasts of joyful lightness ("Syeeda's Song Flute"), and improvisational pyrotechnics ("Mr. P.C."), and the album swings so hard and is so emotionally evocative, it's easy for a listener to overlook just how epochal it was. This is the album that—along with Kind of Blue a year earlier—effectively closed the door on bebop. Coltrane's compositional approach here opened the door to his probing, analytical take on spiritual improvisation over the next few years. Of course, thanks to the luxury of having two days in the studio—far longer than a typical blowing session—he was able to get it right, resulting in a perfect album ... as well as several reels of outtakes. A raft of those appear on this 60th anniversary "Super Deluxe” edition—eight alternate takes and 20 additional outtakes (many of which are previously unreleased) flesh out this collection. Few of them provide much insight or improvement on the album versions and the inclusion of an alternate take of the Coltrane Jazz track "Like Sonny" (recorded contemporaneously with "Naima" on a different date than the rest of Giant Steps) is a bit of a stretch. This latest remastering, while spacious and alive, doesn't improve substantially upon Bill Inglot's 1998 remaster; in fact, one could argue that the 2014 mono remaster is an even more rewarding listening experience. But having a few "definitive" versions of a classic album—one that has been continuously in print and remastered/reissued/updated several times since its original release—is not a bad problem to have. © Jason Ferguson/Qobuz

In the 60 years since John Coltrane's Giant Steps was released, the album has (justifiably) taken its place in the pantheon of classic albums. However, upon its release in early 1960, it was just the Atlantic Records debut of a hotshot saxophonist who had made a name for himself with Miles and Monk and recorded a few albums as a leader (and countless albums as a sideman) on Prestige.

ECM en 10 álbumes

«El sonido más bello después del silencio». Es la coletilla aparejada al sello ECM desde hace cincuenta años. Pero Manfred Eicher, el carismático fundador de la discográfica muniquesa, no vive «al margen del tiempo» sino, en realidad, en «un tiempo paralelo» al de la sociedad, lo que convierte a ECM en un universo tan insólito como bello donde el jazz adopta otras formas. Y es que en ECM, precisamente, Keith Jarrett, Charles Lloyd, Jan Garbarek, Chick Corea y tantos otros han grabado algunos de sus discos más intensos. Más aún que en los casos de Blue Note o Impulse!, limitarse a 10 álbumes para narrar la historia de esta escudería sin parangón se hace misión imposible. Por eso, estos diez discos seleccionados explicarán tan solo «una» de las historias posibles de ECM.

Miles Davis, con los dedos en el enchufe

En 1968 Miles Davis cae rendido al embrujo del duende eléctrico. Fascinado por la revolución psicodélica y funky de Jimi Hendrix y otros, como Sly Stone, el trompetista se metamorfosea y, de paso, trastorna el mundo del jazz.

Érase una vez... Blue Note en 10 álbumes

¡El más mítico sello de jazz se servía de los mejores ingredientes! Los mejores artistas, repertorios originales, directores artísticos con intuición, tomas de sonido excepcionales, portadas estéticamente impresionantes, eclecticismo genérico (be-bop, hard bop, soul jazz, jazz modal, free)... todo, todo estaba ahí, en las grabaciones de la escudería fundada en 1939 por Francis Wolff y Alfred Lion, dos alemanes escapados del régimen nazi. Y de su amplio catálogo Qobuz ha seleccionado diez álbumes fundamentales. Algunos han alcanzado categoría de clásicos. Otros, son maravillas subestimadas. Pero los diez son auténticamente imprescindibles y han contribuido a configurar la estética Blue Note.
