Overview

Prestige Profiles

Prestige Profiles, Vol. 3 highlights recordings made in the 1950s by tenor saxophonist Sonny Rollins for the legendary jazz label. Although the majority of these ten tracks are standards, including "More Than You Know," "On a Slow Boat to China," and "It's All Right with Me," they emphasize Rollins' ability to make every performance his own, no matter how many times he has played a particular song. Also included are the Rollins-penned "Tenor Madness," "Mambo Bounce," and "St. Thomas," a tune that has since become a modern jazz standard. While there is nothing here the jazz collector doesn't already own, Prestige Profiles, Vol. 3 provides a decent sampling for the curious listener at a mid-line price. For a limited time, the first ten volumes in this series include a free bonus compilation CD of Prestige artists.
