SONNY ROLLINS SAXOPHONE COLOSSUS Label: Prestige Released:1956 Format: Flac The year 1956 marked a turning point for Sonny Rollins. Out of the ashes of what had been a talented but troubled young tenor saxophonist, came a new Sonny Rollins, his purpose clarified and strengthened, his muse razor sharp and brimming with new visions. As a new member of the Clifford Brown/Max Roach Organization, he was inspired as much by their spiritual consistency as their artistic integrity. . With Saxophone Colossus, Sonny Rollins created a personal vision of the tenor saxophone and modern jazz brimming over with joy and conviction. Saxophone Colossus was a breakthrough recording, praised for its lyrical power, thematic logic, relentless swing and spontaneous invention. Borrowing a page from his West Indian roots, Rollins' "St. Thomas" employed elements of Caribbean folk melodies and calypso rhythms to create an exotic, dancing tenor anthem--one of the most identifiable, beloved themes in all of jazz--driven along by Max Roach's melodic drumming, Tommy Flannagan's shimmering accompaniment, and the saxophonist's swaggering melodic invention. Recorded at the Van Gelder Studio, Hackensack, New Jersey on June 22, 1956.
