Few musicians can claim to rival John Coltrane in the tenor saxophone stakes, let alone to have looked him in the eye across a stage or studio floor. Sonny Rollins is one of those rare and talented men. His desire to push boundaries has kept him at the top for more than half a century: in critic John Fordham’s words, ‘the drive constantly to remake new music out of old is part of the spirit of jazz – and Rollins remains a dazzling exponent’. Sonny Rollins’ trademark enthusiasm and experimentation is apparent in every note he plays: enjoy this collection of classic recordings from his first golden period.

This double LP incorporates both of Rollins classic 1956 albums (originally released on Prestige) recorded at Rudy Van Gelder Studio.
