The music of John Coltrane has influenced jazz so thoroughly that understanding the harmonies of his compositional technique is essential. The IIm7-V7-I maj7 progression is utilized here in major thirds, both rising and descending, as in his two most well-known pieces, Giant Steps and Countdown. The walking bassline used throughout for the left hand is an essential skill for every aspiring jazz pianist to cultivate. This piece has right-hand chords that anticipate the downbeat, and some three-against-two in the opening and closing sections. Approx duration 1 min 30 secs. With a clear, step-wise melody, solid block harmony where the chords change, and a steady, rhythmic bassline underpinning some stylish syncopation, this piece is everything music needs to be fully realized piano jazz!
