[Giant Steps] “perhaps Coltrane’s most playable, memorable, and best-sustained record. The tunes are uniformly marvellous, riffs or steps or even melodies which have become integral parts of the modern jazz book”

[My Favorite Things] “dominated by his soprano sax … the important thing is that both Coltrane and Tyner reduce the material to a couple of scales and ignore the changes, without forgetting to return to the main theme the music a suitably endless feel” (Penguin Jazz Guide)
