TOP 100 REVIEWERon 5 March 2013
The great tenor saxophonist Sonny Rollins quit the jazz scene in the summer of 1959 and could sometimes be heard at night practising on New York's Williamsburg Bridge.
Rollins' first album after his woodshedding period was apprpriately titled 'The Bridge' and recorded at RCA Victor Studios on January 30 & February 13/14, 1962.
The piano-less quartet featured guitarist Jim Hall, bassist Bob Cranshaw & drummer Ben Riley(replaced by H.T.Saunders on one track) and showed that there was no radical change in Rollins' playing from his pre-sabbatical days.
The six memorable tracks feature impressive interplay between Rollins and Hall and highlights include Rollins' up-tempo title-track and a beautiful version of 'God Bless The Child'.
'The Bridge' still sounds fresh over 50 years later and is an essential item in any Rollins collection.
