This is a truly outstanding compilation of material from one of Rollins' most productive and creatively fruitful periods. Focusing on recordings made between 1954 and 1958, this disc represents Rollins at his varied, mind-bendingly masterful best, from the tender ballad phrasing and soulful tone of "You Don't Know What Love Is" to the wild, syncopated lines of "Movin' Out." Rollins wears so many hats that it's sometimes hard to believe he's one man: throwing out sing-song themes like "I'm An Old Cowhand," winding through fluid choruses like "No Moe," turning harmonic and rhythmic notions upside down in his dazzling solos.
He litters his improvisations with quirkily-stressed phrases, quotes, repeated patterns, arpeggiated chords that seem to ascend and descend at once, and sheer inexplicable magic. As if "St. Thomas" alone weren't worth the price of the album, the listener also gets the final track, "Tenor Madness," in which Rollins goes head to head with John Coltrane--a historic meeting yielding earfuls of delectable playing.
