Please note - this title was originally called 'Coltrane - A Player's Guide'.

Coltrane's landmark composition Giant Steps used a new harmonic formula. This excellent book examines both Giant Steps and Countdown in detail and explains the Cycle of Descending Major Thirds. With many solo examples and practice exercises, the authors show how to apply the formula to standard tunes and to incorporate it into your improvisational vocabulary.

In addition, the following volumes from the Jamey Aebersold Play-Along Series are very valuable for putting the information in this book to use:
Volume 16; Volume 27; Volume 28; Volume 68; Volume 75.
