Description

Compiled and annotated by musician and acknowledged expert Simon Spillett, this 4 CD survey of the greatest living Jazz musician during the most intriguing and productive time in his career.

During 1958, at the peak of his powers, Sonny Rollins recorded some of his most diverse music yet. Then, without warning, and confounding all praise heaped on him, he took a baffling two year retirement as he attempted to further perfect his art, emerging in 1962 to even greater critical acclaim.

This set contains key studio recordings and legendary live recordings.

The box includes a 36 page booklet with a fascinating essay, discographical information and rare photos.
