Sonny Rollins: Four Classic Albums (Sonny Rollins Plus 4 / Sonny Rollins Volume 1 / Sonny Rollins Volume 2 / Saxophone Colossus) (2CD)
AVID Jazz presents four classic Sonny Rollins albums on a finely re-mastered and low priced double CD.
We start off in March 1956 with ‘Sonny Rollins Plus 4’ where unsurprisingly we find Sonny accompanied, by you guessed it, four stellar jazzmen. Clifford Brown on trumpet, Max Roach on drums, George Morrow on bass and Richie Powell on piano. Recorded a little later the same year in December 1956 our second offering is ‘Sonny Rollins Volume One’ where Sonny is found in the company of Donald Byrd on trumpet, Wynton Kelly on piano, Gene Ramey on bass and our old friend Max Roach on drums. CD2 moves on to 1957 for ‘Sonny Rollins Volume Two’ where Sonny is joined by another fantastic line up including Thelonious Monk playing piano on his own classic compositions ‘Misterioso’ and ‘Reflections’. Monk is then replaced by the great Horace Silver while Paul Chambers continues on bass and Art Blakey is behind the drum kit while Jay Jay Johnson plays the trombone phew!! We round the set off with Sonny’s undisputed masterpiece of the period, recorded a year earlier in 1956. ‘Saxophone Colossus’ finds the great man playing at his most consistent and making memorable music with Tommy Flanagan on piano, Doug Watkins on bass and that man again, Max Roach on drums!
All four albums have been digitally re-mastered for probably the finest sound quality ever!
