More Giant Steps Resources

Our compatriot Evan Tate has written a couple of etudes based on the chord progression from Coltrane's Giant Steps. The two versions, for tenor and alto saxophones, are NOT identical. I'm sure any instrumentalist would derive great benefit from studying and learning these etudes:

HERE are the Bb choruses.

HERE is the Eb study.

Of course you can use these etudes with our newly released TRANE TRAX, featuring Giant Steps changes at three tempos (slow bossa, medium swing and uptempo swing).
