CD Reviews

Another great Rollins album!
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Wow, this one is great! I fell in love with it the day I got it. On this CD, he has two different rhythm sections (one on tracks 1,2,4, 6, and 7, and another on tracks 3 and 5), but both back him up excellently. I especially like the piano playing of Stephen Scott. Rollins's tone is great as always. Although I wasn't familiar with any of the songs on the CD when I bought it, which is unusual for me, I still really enjoy listening to it. Buy it now!"
One of the Sweetest performances

"Sonny Rollins is indeed the last Tenor Saxophone master. No one else has the same depth and fluidity simultaneously. No one has the history of this music embedded. For Sonny it is not a style cut and pasted on top of competent Berkley School of Music Classroom Technique.

In this tuneful group of songs this genius goes from a simple song like Mona Lisa and moves into the depths of fragmented polyrhythmic phrasing. As is his style, Mr. Rollins returns to the melodic aspects of the song frequently enough so that the continuity of his improvisation and the tune are intimately connected.

I give this album the highest marks. The back up group is terrific and features Jack de Johnette and the late great Tommy Flanagan. I also recommend his concert for 9/11 because it was recorded live. Long Live Sonny, The Last Saxophone master."
