180g vinyl LP reissue of Sonny Rollins’ classic album ‘Saxophone Colossus’ in deluxe gatefold sleeve with iconic pictures by jazz photographer Francis Wolff.
Sonny Rollins had already been a regular member of the celebrated Max Roach- Clifford Brown Quintet for half a year when he entered the studio on June 22, 1956 to record Saxophone Colossus, one of his most acclaimed albums as a leader. Age 26, Rollins was already a well-known jazz figure.
He had recorded some albums as a leader but, above all, he had been part of some of the most outstanding combos of the period: the Miles Davis Quintet and the Max Roach-Clifford Brown Quintet. The present album introduced his famous composition “Saint Thomas”.
