Down Beat - p.57
3 stars out of 5 -- "He sounds terrific: big, burly, knotted and beautiful, nicely recorded here to boot."
JazzTimes - p.97
"The edgier tone throws his expressive devices into stark relief. Every nuance is felt."
Mojo (Publisher) - p.102
4 stars out of 5 -- "His playing possesses a virile muscularity on the modal track, while on the standard 'Someday I'll Find You', he creates a beguiling aura of wistful elegance. Masterful."

By the mid-2000s, Sonny Rollins had established himself as one of jazz's official elder statesmen, touting a colossal, decades-spanning discography that boasted some of the best boundary-pushing bop and post bop in the jazz canon. With 2006's SONNY, PLEASE, the artist shows no signs of slowing. Flanked by excellent personnel--including a trombonist, percussionist, and guitarist--Rollins runs through a mix of originals and standards with a spirited focus that recalls the saxophonist's heyday. While Rollins has sounded more experimental, he is far from staid here, soloing with the bold intensity his legions of long-time fans expect.
