Album Review

This new collection of live performances from the legendary tenor saxophonist was mostly culled from a concert at New York's Beacon Theatre on September 10, 2010, on the occasion of his 80th birthday, aside from two tracks from an October 2010 date in Sapporo, Japan. Personnel include Roy Hargrove, Jim Hall, Russell Malone, Bob Cranshaw, Sammy Figueroa, and most especially bassist Christian McBride and drummer Roy Haynes on "Sonnymoon for Two." The pianoless trio is joined after the first solo by none other than Ornette Coleman, in the first meeting on record of the two saxophone giants. The clash between Rollins and Coleman's trademark styles stretches for 22 minutes of confrontational jazz nirvana, and incontestably becomes the album's centerpiece.

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.
