Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
There's a back-story behind this album that, as if Flanagan's playing weren't enough, should make it all the more indispensable. After Cedar Walton had been overwhelmed by the rapid and unconventional chord progression of "Giant Steps," John Coltrane next went to Tommy Flanagan. The results weren't dramatically different, but Flanagan, in Coltrane's estimate, came closer to implementing his daring new concept than Walton and, as a result, is the pianist on Coltrane's most important, seminal album.

Both pianists regretted their first performances and re-recorded "Giant Steps" after they had gotten the tune under their fingers. But no pianist's approach to the tune has been more successful in purely musical terms than Flanagan's, assisted by his favorite team of George Mraz (b) and Al Foster (d). As on all of the other tunes on this collection, "Giant Steps" soars under Tommy's talented fingers, sounding flowing, effortless, and vibrantly fresh with each passing measure. His phrases, as usual, breathe, live and sing with a vibrant beauty that argues for his pre-eminence among the "holy Trinity" of Detroit pianists (Hank Jones and Barry Harris were the other two members) and perhaps the entire school of pianists whose primary inspiration was the music of Bud Powell.

Flanagan never played a bad note--even on the Coltrane recording he gets the nod because of the bad notes he "could have" but elects NOT to play. As accompanist (for Tony and Ella), as sideman (for J.J. Johnson, for whom he was always the first choice), and finally as leader of his own trios, Flanagan was the understated giant of modern pianists. He required no pre-rehearsed phrases, no tricks, no trendy reharmonizations, no unusual voicings of chords, no clever quotations from other tunes.
