Giant Steps is considered one of, if not the greatest, jazz albums, so it is difficult not to credit it as Coltrane's best. However, A Love Supreme is my favorite Coltrane album. A true testament of his brilliance.

A Love Supreme Is my fave too. These three albums are distinctly different. Giant Steps is very much what most people come to associate with coltrane's style: slightly free-form and very "modal". Blue Train is really bluesy and probably the most accessible of all his work. A Love Supreme is beyond definition, very spiritual and transcendental.

They, as in Coltrane and the production, did a very good job at distinguishing that Coltrane was not simply a one genre jazz artist; he is able to pick up a unique and unusual style for each form of jazz he plays.

Some of the sessions from Africa are immense.
