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.

A Genius at his best always. The Smooth sounds of his sax, coupled with changes in tempo, is Haunting. Sonny is by far amongst my favorites. Genius all over again
