"... a typical example of why his work from this period is a high water mark in the history of the jazz saxophone ... as historically important as it is enjoyable ..."
- JazzTimes.com

"... a classic ... a somewhat atypical disc for the tenorist, both of the period and in his oeuvre ... Rollins concentrates on standards and keeps the tunes to bite-size lengths ... the brevity of the pieces hints at a particular kind of discipline and it's reflected in the leader's performance ... he sounds uncharacteristically restrained throughout. It's a pleasant change ... Rollins swings nicely through the record, improvising beautifully ... as one would expect, the rhythm section is flawless ..."
- All About Jazz

Sonny Rollins made his debut for the Riverside label with this album, recorded and released in 1957, the same year he was named New Star of the tenor saxophone by the critics of DownBeat. Rollins is surrounded by top names, including pianist Sonny Clark, bassists Percy Heath and Paul Chambers and drummer Roy Haynes on a programme of covers and standards, with one original Rollins song.

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
