Yanow has it right except he fails to mention this dynamic yet sometimes sultry version of Mona Lisa. give it 10 or 12 plays and see if it ever sounds the same.

Six Degrees of Sonny Rollins’s The Bridge

By Kevin Whitehead, Contributor

It used to be easier to pretend that an album was its own perfectly self-contained artifact. The great records certainly feel that way. But albums are more permeable than solid, their motivations, executions and inspirations informed by, and often stolen from, their peers and forbearers. It all sounds awfully formal, but it's not. It's the very nature of music — of art, even. The Six Degrees features examine the relationships between classic records and five… more »

Don Cherry: Pied Piper with a Pocket Trumpet

By Kevin Whitehead, Contributor

Don Cherry began to make his mark with his first recording session, on February 10, 1958, as foil for freebopping alto saxophonist Ornette Coleman on music recorded for Something Else! Their bebop forebears Dizzy Gillespie and Charlie Parker favored rough-sounding unison melodies, a departure from the swing era's smooth blends, but the Coleman-Cherry mix was scrappier still. As soloist, Don took cues from how Ornette's solos didn't track a tune's harmonies too closely. They didn't… more »

They Say All Music Guide

Ever since Sonny Rollins signed with Milestone in the mid-1970s, critics who prefer his earlier work have complained that Rollins’ sidemen are not worthy of him. For this superb effort, detractors have nothing to complain about, for the immortal tenor is joined by either Tommy Flanagan or Stephen Scott on piano, his longtime electric bassist Bob Cranshaw and either Al Foster or Jack DeJohnette on drums. Rollins is in wonderful form, stretching out on two basic originals and five standards including “What a Difference a Day Made,” “Cabin In the Sky” and “I’ve Never Been In Love Before.” Building his rhythmic improvisations off of the songs’ strong melodies (returning to the themes often), Rollins sounds quite exuberant. This studio set captures the excitement of a Sonny Rollins concert and is highly recommended. – Scott Yanow
