4.0 out of 5 stars Fascinating early Sonny Rollins from 1951-1953., 14 Jan 2013

Tracks 1-4 feature tenor saxophonist Sonny Rollins with the Modern Jazz Quartet: John Lewis(piano); Milt Jackson(vibes); Percy Heath(bass) & Kenny Clarke(drums) recorded on October 7, 1953.
Tracks 5-12 were recorded on December 17, 1951 with Rollins(tenor sax); Kenny Drew(piano); Percy Heath(bass) & Art Blakey(drums).
The final track 'I Know' from January 17, 1951 was Rollins first recording as leader with Miles Davis(piano); Percy Heath(bass) & Roy Haynes(drums).
Although not an essential album the 13 enjoyable and fascinating short tracks(between 2:13 & 3:26 minutes) show that Sonny Rollins had a distinctive tenor style even at this early stage of his career.
