"Giant Steps" by John Coltrane

Dan Cohen has been creating wonderful Animated Sheet Music of jazz songs by Miles Davis, Charlie Parker and John Coltrane.

This is what John Coltrane's landmark tune and solo look like when they come to life on paper.

If you try to play along, you may notice that the transcription for the head is transposed for C and the solo's in Bb. Weird, I know, but the transcription book that I based this animation on was in concert.

You can buy the sheet music here:
