Sonny Rollins

The Sound of Sonny …1957 was the year he became king. That year he recorded 7 albums as a leader.

Recorded as a teenager with Bud Powell and J.J. Johnson then stints with Miles, Monk, and 2 years with Max Roach groups.

Two recordings to own are Saxophone Colossus a Prestige recording with Tommy Flanagan ( piano), Doug Watkins ( bass ), Max Roach ( drums ).  A improvisational masterpiece. Night At The Village Vanguard (Live) A Blue Note 2 CD set featuring Donald Bailey, Wilbar Ware (bass), Pete LaRoca, Elvin Jones ( drums). These recordings are a MUST HAVE in any collection.
