(4 out of 5 stars)
"In the Sonny Rollins cannon this would not be in my opinion one of his great accomplishments. The playing is solid Sonny and larry Coryell is wonderful as well. The sound here is very reflective of the times with several tunes featuring 70's disco rhythms. Harlem Boys is a barn burner of an opener and I fondly rememeber hearing Sonny Rollins perform this at the Bottom Line in New York back in the late 70's. Rollins is the most incredible musician I've ever seen live with a a non-stop flow of musical ideas that is almost overwhelming. Harlem Boys captures that feel for me. THis is not n the same league as Saxophone Colossus, Tenor MAdness , the Bridge or many of Sonny's earlier recordings but it is still very good. I deduct one star for the disco sound recognizing that it was refelctive of the times."
