Eight Classic Albums

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Thom Jurek
This is an interesting collection of the European Real Gone Jazz imprint, pairing eight albums by Sonny Rollins on four discs, all of them recorded between 1954 and 1957 -- six from Prestige alongside his first two self-titled outings from Blue Note. The then Young Lion leads dates with personnel ranging from Max Roach and Clifford Brown to Donald Byrd and Thelonious Monk and even John Coltrane. Disc one contains Moving Out and Tour de Force, both recorded for Prestige in 1954 and 1956, respectively. Disc two, oddly enough, features Work Time (Prestige, 1955) and Sonny Rollins (Blue Note, 1956); disc three contains the fine Sonny Rollins Plus Four date from 1956 for Prestige...

The final two recordings, Tenor Madness and Saxophone Colossus, were both issued on Prestige, and cut in 1956. Fans of these recordings no doubt already have them on CD; these versions do not contain the bonus material of later remastered editions and are presented for a budget price.
