Biography

Always a restless creative spirit, a constantly self-renewing citizen of the jazz world and one of the music's leading lights, saxophone legend Sonny Rollins has long been ambivalent about, even averse to, the business side of music. However, since forming his own record label, Doxy, in 2005, Rollins has emerged as an inspired-and surprisingly assertive-entrepreneur.

5.0 out of 5 stars Priceless Rollins June 19, 2004
By MikeG
Format:Audio CD
This CD anthologises some of Sonny Rollins's better performances from the mid-1960s. It was an unsettled period for Rollins, when the quality of his music could be frustratingly inconsistent. Even though he was continuing to develop as a soloist and was extending the tonal resources of his tenor sax playing, he seemed often to be dissatisfied with conventional jazz material.
A good example of the uneven nature of his work during this period was the album `East Broadway Rundown', which brought into the studio four excellent musicians - Rollins, Freddie Hubbard, Jimmy Garrison and the great Elvin Jones - and then wasted their talents on the over-long title track, a rambling piece of "free" improvisation which took up one side of the LP. This CD performs a particularly valuable service by salvaging the two remaining tracks by the splendid trio of Rollins, Garrison and Jones, and they are so good that you wonder how the opportunity could have been passed up to make a whole album by the trio. "We Kiss in the Shadow" has Rollins playing with an unusual tender romanticism without losing that familiar depth and strength of tone, and "Blessing in Disguise" is an absorbing, exhilarating blues (its five-note theme sounds like an ironic reduction of the rock'n'roll tune, "Be Bop a Lula"), played at a slow walking pace and full of fascinating twists and turns. Garrison and, especially, Jones are in excellent form on both tracks, the drummer providing shifting tone-colours and polyrhythms behind the saxophonist and Garrison contributing a good solo to "Blessing in Disguise".
"Alfie's Theme" is the main theme from Rollins's score for the Lewis Gilbert film.

5.0 out of 5 stars Always "Sonny" April 29, 2012
By Jerlaw
Format:Audio CD
I guess one of the things I like so much about Sonny is that his music has a lot of humor in it, & he "quotes" from other tunes all the time. Jazz should be fun, & no-one has more fun with it than Sonny. I've got a number of albums by Sonny:"The Quartets" featuring Jim Hall; ; "The Bridge", etc.

"People loved Sonny Rollins up in Harlem and everywhere else. He was a legend, almost a god to a lot of the younger musicians. Some thought he was playing the saxophone on the level of Bird. I know one thing--he was close. He was an aggressive, innovative player who always had fresh musical ideas. I loved him back then as a player and he could also write his ass off..."

However, it's Sonny himself who steals the show, up front & center.I love his rendition of "St. Thomas" a jazz standard; "Strode Rode" written by Sonny; & he shows his ballad skills on "You Don't know what Love Is.
It's a quintet setting: the great Tommy Flanagan (P) Doug Watkins (B) & the great Max Roach who did a lot of work with Cliffor Brown on drums.

I( think you'll like this album as much as I did.
