iTunes Review

Tenor saxophone behemoth Sonny Rollins was pioneering the pianoless trio at the time of these 1957 shows. Night at the Village Vanguard is both his live album debut and the first commercial concert recording to be captured at the subterranean Manhattan jazz institution. With either Elvin Jones or Pete La Roca on drums and Wilbur Ware or Donald Bailey on double bass, Rollins deftly deconstructs standards like “I’ve Got You Under My Skin” and “I’ll Remember April” with inspired fury. Rollins’ initial tireless examination of “What Is This Thing Called Love?” is followed by Jones’ masterful drum solo, while Ware’s subtle support and perfect note choices radiate on “I Can’t Get Started,” the album’s sole ballad.

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.
