One of Sonny Rollins‘ better recordings of the 1970s, this spirited set finds the veteran tenor saxman adopting a thicker and raunchier R&B-ish tone […]

Pretty good record. I actually like the Stevie Wonder cover. “Easy Living” and “My One and Only Love” are nice as well. […]

Amazon
Highly recommended for all fans of Sonny Rollins and for any jazz fans open to the sound of electric instruments (guitar, bassand piano) backing Rollins’ inspired solos on tenor and soprano saxophones. One of my favorites among my ever-growing collection of Rollins’ output […]
