Reseña de álbum

Here Jazz Showcase focuses tightly upon the mid-'50s recordings that thrust Sonny Rollins firmly into the spotlight, gathering seven tracks from Prestige, two from Contemporary, and one from Riverside. For those interested in samples of Rollins' most famous albums, the CD contains one track from Way Out West and a selection from Plus Four (with the Clifford Brown/Max Roach quintet), and indulges in two cuts from the celebrated Saxophone Colossus. There are several originals, including the entire epic "Tenor Madness" with heavyweight sparring partner John Coltrane, yet enduring Rollins standards like "Airegin," "Oleo," and "Doxy" are left out, perhaps because he was technically a sideman on those sessions. Along the way, the CD touches upon Rollins' endearing habit of picking the most unlikely song choices for material ("I'm an Old Cowhand," "Toot, Toot, Tootsie, Goodbye") and his yen for calypso ("St. Thomas"). The critical consensus is that the mid-'50s were Rollins' best period (although some favor the RCA Victor/Impulse! 1960s), and this CD serves quite well as an appetite enhancer. ~ Richard S.

Sonny Rollins will go down in history as not only the single most enduring tenor saxophonist of the bebop and hard bop era, but also as one of the greatest contemporary jazz saxophonists of them all. His fluid and harmonically innovative ideas, effortless manner, and easily identifiable and accessible sound have influenced generations of performers, but have also fueled the notion that mainstream jazz music can be widely enjoyed, recognized, and proliferated.
