In the latter part of 1959, I was a guest DJ on KJAZ that first year of it's inception . I won 2 record album's. I picked a Cecil Taylor and this Sonny album. It's great to hear it again. A BIG TENOR SAX TONE, slipping and sliding idea's with a wet number 5 reed? Max Roach is one of the great drummers of all time , playing with ease, as smooth as drum butter. The same thing with the masterful Oscar Pettiford. There were 3 truly great Jazz bass players at that time;Mingus,Ray Brown and Pettiford. These guy's worked well together here, It's a perfect Jazz marriage. There are 3 takes of "Till there was you?" "The freedom Suite" has a few different movements in it. And, single tracks of,"Shadow Waltz","Someday I'll find you", "Will you still be mine"'. Because Sonny was Late for the session,Pet&Max did their thing on"There will never be another you". This is a perfect , totally satisfying top of the line Jazz performance that the listener will never tire of. Over 50 minutes of CLASSIC JAZZ ! There is a booklet featuring, Orrin Keepnews (Producer), his view and his opinions on the session written in 1958 and 2008. When will they have the staples on the other side of the booklets, so that it's easier to slide it out,when it's thick? I usually put it back upside down, that way it's easier later to slide it out. In the 70's I played on my show(KPOO); Sonny Rollins at the Village Vanguard ( the complete album ) which was another 5 star (My opinion) performance with Wilber Ware and drummers on different tracks;Pete Larocca or Elvin Jones,Recorded in 1956. P.S. Sonny sure know's how to pick 'em.

The stunning Freedom Suite 24-bit remastered in the Keepnews Collection helps crank up the sonic boom to this beautifully recorded session from early `58. Sonny's in peak form along with Max Roach on drums and Oscar Pettiford on bass.

The themes to Freedom Suite have Sonny's finger prints all over them, typically original and strong enough for the galvanizing variations that follow. It's not just the outer movements of razors edge excitement that keeps one turning it up for the neighbourhood to share, but the mesmerizing slow middle movement puts this way beyond the pale of most musicians ability of handling the blues.

My only qualm is that I wished the three movements to the Suite had been individually tracked as sometimes I head straight for that magisterial middle movement.

The rest of the tunes are pleasant enough and won't cause any side long glances, making this album a bit of something for everyone. The booklet too is an improvement on the earlier CD release.

Format: Audio CD
This is the third recording Rollins made with his unique piano-less trio, and this one cements this particular format. The preceding two albums debuting this format are as different from this one as they are from each other: Way Out West and A Night At The Village Vanguard.

I consider this one to be essential because the rhythm section features two of the most melodic musicians on the scene: Oscar Pettiford on bass and Max Roach on drums. As a drummer those two are reason enough for me to get this album, but as a musician it's a joy to hear Rollins reinventing himself yet again. He truly stretches on this entire album, and I am sure that Pettiford and Roach behind him were inspiring him to reach.

The only way to get any sense of this album is to listen to the sound samples on this page. Granted, they are only tantalizing tidbits, but should be enough to reinforce what I am trying to say. Indeed, there is nothing I can say that will convey more information than the samples.

Note that this has extra takes that the original album did not have. Al of the tracks except Freedom Suite were recorded for Riverside in NYC on February 11, 1958 (Freedom Suite was recorded in NYC on March 7, 1958). I mentioned that I consider this to be an essential album, but not just for Rollins's fans. If you are a fan of Pettiford and/or Roach it's equally important because both are well showcased here. It's a spectacular recording for anyone who loves jazz from the era.
