Customer Reviews

Just "The Bridge" with 2 Extra Songs -But Good

Actually, this is a pretty awesome album. They've simply taken the classic Rollins album "The Bridge", arranged the songs in a different order and added 2 tracks with guitarist
Jim Hall recorded at the same session. Pretty good value, all things considered.

The Quartets

Sonny Rollins' recordings on RCA began once he resurfaced from his MIA period in the early 60's. This album, as noted in the previous review, is actually "The Bridge" and two cuts, "If Ever I Would Leave You" and "The Night Has a Thousand Eyes" from the "What's New" RCA album. Both these albums feature guitarist Jim Hall. The Rollins/Hall collaborations on RCA should reignite interest in these albums given Hall's recent passing December, 2013. The two tunes from "What's New" have more of a bossa nova motif which blends well Rollins affinity for calypso music. This is a great album to have in your library covering both Rollins' and Hall's legacy well.

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.
