Product Description:

Personnel includes: Sonny Rollins (tenor saxophone).
Recorded between 1949 & 1952.
The late '40s were a crucial time for a younger set of jazz musicians reared on bebop and searching for their own sound. Sonny Rollins was easily in the top of his class of up-and-comers in 1949 when he made his recording debut with Babs Gonzales. Already showcasing his muscular tone and fluid lines, Rollins would develop into one of the most influential musicians of his generation by the late '50s. However, it is this early period of growth that is featured on Complete 1949-1951 Prestige Studio Sessions. While not as thorough as the earlier release Complete Prestige Recordings, this Definitive version features a nice selection of Rollins' best early work as leader. ~ Matt Collar
