A persistently provocative set of standards: Sonny delivers along with Ray
Bryant, Walter Booker, and Mickey Rokar.
Sonny Rollins made some excellent recordings for Impulse in the mid-1960s, a
time when his unassailable skills and acrobatic approach made him a leading
saxophonist, and one of the few to rival John Coltrane. On Impulse has only five
tracks, but each tells the complex, glorious story of Rollins' talent,
especially in the stretched-out solos where his knack for inventively, endlessly
de- and re-constructing is evident.
