Way Out West

( 3 )

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Scott Yanow
The timeless Way out West established Sonny Rollins as jazz's top tenor saxophonist at least until John Coltrane surpassed him the following year. Joined by bassist Ray Brown and drummer Shelly Manne, Rollins is heard at one of his peaks on such pieces as "I'm an Old Cowhand From the Rio Grande," his own "Way out West," "There Is No Greater Love," and "Come, Gone" a fast stomp based on "After You've Gone". The William Claxton photo of Rollins wearing Western gear and holding his tenor in the desert is also a classic. [The Contemporary re-release appends three bonus tracks, all of them alternate takes.]
