This review is from: The Bridge (Audio CD)
Sonny Rollins' return to recording was and is still regarded by many as having been disappointing after recordings such as Worktime and Saxophone Colossus...
Well, I can't disagree more.
The tone is better, so is the attack and, above all, the ideas are more mature. Moreover, any flirtations he had with the piano were more or less forgotten after this - he never needed one anyway.
As much as I like the aforementioned recordings, I play this more often - sometimes I think it's because I've memorised Colossus, then when I hear The Bridge again I know why.
