Great stuff! It must taken a lot of time and effort to 'animate' the notes to appear in time with the music - amazing.

I did notice that it is not written on the staff for Bb tenor. Why would they not transpose it?

I love "Giant Steps"!!!!

Especially the way Coltrane plays it.

It would be cool if John Coltrane did an Alto Sax/Trumpet/Tenor sax duet with Charlie Parker and Miles Davis on this song!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I've seen this video lots of times!!!

Giant Steps on sheet music sure is hard for a sax player to play.

That's why I'd rather pick it up and play it by ear, it's much easier.

I am disappointed that no one has posted the video of the robot playing giant steps.

Sometimes you forget how good a musician/saxophonist is. Steve Grossman is a bad MF. He can really play.
AMEN....And another bad MF'r that was a Giant Step killer was....our man below....ANDREW WHITE :)

ANDREW IS A GREAT GREAT PLAYER AND HERO.:mrgreen:

This video inspired me to make my own video this (southern) summer. Much shorter, and less ambitious. But more fun.

Please enjoy.
