Biography

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 ...

Monster on the tenor Newk's Time is a tour de force of tenor saxophone improvisation and group cohesion. Boldly executed with a musical eloquence brimming with confidence and invention, the pieces recorded on this date are all great showcases for the talents of the musicians who made them.
The tightest, most intricately developed relationship is between Sonny and Philly Joe Jones. From the very opening "Tune Up", the Miles Davis tune, Philly Joe is creating this shimmering rhythmic power that Sonny draws upon to nurture his feverish imagination. And nowhere is the uniqueness of this relationship more persuasive than on the drums-and-sax duo of "The Surrey with the Fringe on Top". The two of them play so closely and densely that one is led to think that the piano and bass haven't abandoned them. But such thoughts are quickly dispelled on the next piece, "Blues for Philly Joe", where the warmth of Doug Watkins' bass kicks in with a great swinging pulse, and Wyn Kelly delivers a blues solo worthy of his finest moments.
The album is thoughtfully brought to a close with a ballad, "Namely You".

This is an excellent quartet album by the great tenor saxophonist Sonny Rollins recorded in New Jersey on September 22, 1957 with a superbly swinging rhythm section of Wynton Kelly(piano), Doug Watkins(bass) & Philly Joe Jones(drums).
Rollins is in imperious form on six tracks and highlights include 'Tune Up'(credited here to Miles Davis but actually written by Eddie "Cleanhead" Vinson), Kenny Dorham's 'Asiatic Raes' and a brilliant version of 'The Surrey With The Fringe On Top'.
Although 'Newk's Time' is not quite on a par with his 1956 classic 'Saxophone Colossus' it's an enjoyable and inventive hard bop album which deserves to be better known.

Time Again for "Newk's Time" 23 Mar. 2004
By Michael Brad Richman - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Unlike most of the recent batch of RVG releases (3/9 & 3/23/04), Sonny Rollins' classic "Newk's Time" has been readily available for years, but this remastered reissue is a welcome addition to the Blue Note catalog nonetheless. Of Sonny's three studio albums for the label, "Newk's Time" has always been my favorite. His debut, "Volume One" (see my review), never measured up to his contemporaneous efforts for Prestige, and "Volume Two" featured an incredible supporting cast, but at the expense of showcasing the tenor titan's individual talents. Therefore, on this September 22, 1957 session it was clearly time for "Newk" to stand in the spotlight. The quartet setting (in this case Wynton Kelly on piano, Doug Watkins on bass and Philly Joe Jones on drums) gave Rollins the ability to stretch out, yet provided him with a stability that, for me anyway, was consistently lacking with only the bass and drums support of the live "Night at the Village Vanguard" volumes. The performances featured here of Miles Davis' "Tune Up," Kenny Dorham's "Asiatic Raes" and Rollins' only original "Blues for Philly Joe" (along with the album's three standards) are all so good, it is hard for me to even begin to select the best track. Suffice it to say that a good time will had by all with "Newk's Time."

Enjoyable Rollins session 15 Aug. 2000
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
The music on this cd is straightahead collection of standards and one Rollins' original. While it is not as exceptional as his albums from the same period such as "Way Out West" or his "Live at the Village Vanguard" sessions, "Newk's Time" is very enjoyable. Rollins' tenor is robust and swings throughout. The Miles Davis cut "Tune Up" and the Kenny Dorham original "Asiatic Raes" are highlights. Rollins' quartet includes talented veterans Wynton Kelly on piano, Doug Watkins on bass, and Philly Joe Jones on drums. The trio's familiarty with each other is evident as they are watertight in support of the tenor. This is a solid swinging set from Rollins and should be enjoyed by fans of the great tenor and fans of straight ahead hard bop alike.

A Short and Sweet Classic 30 July 2007
By Todd M. Stellhorn - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Sonny Rollins has a massive discography, and within that discography there are many great, even classic, albums. But for my money this is the place to start, and the place where I most often come back to. For one thing Rollins is the sole horn on this date, and his backing is as smooth as the worn ivory of Monk's piano. Doug Watkins, though it's hard to tell from this uncharacteristically bass-lite mix, was one of the top bassmen ever (I highly recommend his album: "Watkins at Large", or Donald Byrd's "Byrd's eye view", both featuring hank mobley, to get a better idea about what he could do). In addition Philly Joe Jones is at his beat-conscious, blue flame, simmering best, and Wynton Kelly is a good choice to accompany Rollins as his piano playing has an emphatic quality to it that accentuates the volatile Rollin's solos. And what solos they are. On "Newk's Time" Rollins is at his searing, sputtering, round-toned, passionate best. Though "vol.2" is also a five star classic, it was cluttered by the musings of all those other legends and didn't give Rollins enough time to shine. At his personal best Rollins loved space and time to roam around in, to see where he could go, and to extend his ideas (see "way out west" and the live villiage vanguard recordings), he gets that here to a slightly more structured and polished degree. Indeed the only thing wrong with this album is that it isn't longer, but in music, as in life, it's quality, not quantity, that counts for the most.

Making Something New 14 Sept. 2000
By Paul Savage - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Sonny Rollins was (and I suppose still is) fond of standards. If any jazzman uses them, in accordance with be-bop theory, as a framework for something new Rollins does it here. This is 'Surrey with a fringe on top' as you have never heard it sound before; a surreal pre-reggae honk, and a duo to boot, which works perfectly and leaves any thought of the original far behind whilst spookily managing to respect its form and harmonic structure. 'Asiatic Raes' again evokes the black world outside America (Rollins antecedants were from the West indies) and is a treat, with alternating African and American jazz rhythms underpinning theme and top class variations - a treat. Tune Up, composed by Miles or Cleanhead Vinson, depending who you believe, is brilliant. Some reckon Sonny to be the greatest genuine improvisor and on this evidence you have to believe it. Blues for Philly Jo is an excellently turned out original, but it is with the two ballads, Namely You and Wonderful Wonderful that the alchemy of turning a standard into something new is again cleraly in evidence, even after forty-odd years. Paul Chambers and Philly Jo Jones are at the top of their game throughout and this is one of my all time favourites.

A blowing session 11 April 2002
By nadav haber - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Although I believe that this CD is not as good as Anight at the village Vanguard and Saxophone Colossus, but for the sound, the rhythmic invention, the tightness, and the skill - it is a certain 5 stars. So when discussing this CD, one should take into account that there are others that are even more exciting.
The opener, Tune Up, is a masterpiece - the band plays with fire, and the sparks go flying. Rollins takes the melody and harmony apart and does wondedrful things with them. His playing here falls short of nothing.
The rest of the CD is great but not AS great, although Rollins continues his high form and the rhythm section provides perfect support.
I always liked Rollins ballad playing, and the closer is up to Rollins' ballad standard.
This is a CD for anyone who likes to hear a strong hard-bop tenor master, for Rollins' fans, and for saxophone players who need to learn from Rollins improvisational skills.
