At a head-spinning pitch of 286 beats every minute, backed by a chord progression that demands the utmost level of preparation and performance, the Giant’s steps by John Coltrane, recorded in 1959, is touted as the ultimate challenge in the history of jazz.
But when CamillieBertault, the French vocalist, decided to perform the same piece, she delivered every single note from the original tenor, matching them for quality and quantity. Her solo performance was a fantastic testament to her vocal dexterity and technical superiority. She did the historic piece justice.
Here is Coltrane’s original improvisation on YouTube. And here is the Facebook post by CamillieBertault.
