Image of Sonny Rollins


Sonny Rollins is a saxophone colossus. The revered tenor saxophonist first received that appellation via the name of his 1956 Prestige Records album. Even then, at age 26, the title seemed fitting. He had already played and/or recorded with bebop giants Charlie Parker, Bud Powell, Miles Davis, Thelonious Monk, and J.J. Johnson—and had established himself as the prominent young voice on ...

This album came just before Rollins, again, absented himself from the jazz scene and did not return to recording for several years. Rollins was in an awkward position, he was one of the finest saxophonists of the Post-Bop era. This, however, was a time when others were hogging the limelight. John Coltrane and Ornette Coleman were the pioneers in the early 1960s, Free Jazz was the way forward and East Broadway Rundown was Rollins' boldest attempt to meet that challenge head on.

The presence of Jimmy Garrison - Bass and Elvin Jones - Drums (with Freddie Hubbard - Trumpet, on the title track)underlines just how long a shadow Coltrane had cast.

There is nothing bland about this album, all the contributers bring something extra to the music.
