Sonny starts on fire with "Best Wishes" and smokes his way through this wonderful cd. What's really intersting is the mix of revolving personnel over the years. It reveals Sonny's taste as a bandleader who likes consistency but spontaneity as well.
Well done Newk !

There is a typical Rollins mixture here: 3 up-tempo tunes that let Sonny really blow, 3 standards, and 1 calypso. All are outstanding. I had the pleasure to actually be at his 50th anniversary concert at Carnegie Hall in 2007 when he played "Some Enchanted Evening". I wish he would have released the rest of the set with McBride and Haynes but am glad to have the one performance.
What I also like on this album is that Rollins gives his long-term band mate Clifton Anderson some space to solo on "More than You Know" and "Nice Lady". Anderson is a good trombonist, but Rollins often limits him to just playing some harmony on the opening and closing themes of songs.

I don't think there is any way to describe Rollin's playing on this disk in words. The man transcends everything except himself and his sax. Read morePublished on January 11, 2011 by Gerald S. Manning
