Few musicians can claim to rival John Coltrane in the tenor saxophone stakes, let alone to have looked him in the eye across a stage or studio floor. Sonny Rollins is one of those rare and talented men. His desire to push boundaries has kept him at the top for more than half a century: in critic John Fordham’s words, ‘the drive constantly to remake new music out of old is part of the spirit of jazz – and Rollins remains a dazzling exponent’. Sonny Rollins’ trademark enthusiasm and experimentation is apparent in every note he plays: enjoy this collection of classic recordings from his first golden period.
