Impressive Scat Singer Covers John Coltrane

This is Camille Bertault, a singer performing ‘scat’ style John Coltrane’s song ‘Giant Steps’. The composition is a milestone for jazz musicians’ progress, given the difficulty of improvising its rapid progression of chord changes. John William Coltrane, also known as ‘Trane’ (September 23, 1926 , July 17, 1967), was an American jazz saxophonist and composer. Working in the bebop and hard bop idioms early in his career, Coltrane helped pioneer the use of modes in jazz and was later at the forefront of free jazz. He led at least fifty recording sessions during his career.
