I'm sitting here listening to the latest release by the immortal Sonny Rollins - Without A Song - The 9/11 Concert
and while it may or may not end up being one his best live recordings, it is still head and shoulders above, and I do mean way, way above, anything put out by almost any young loin de jour.
Forget about giving this recording ratings for sound quality or anything of the sort - this the one of true giants captured in top form and therefore demands to be heard. You will not be disappointed.
The thing about Rollins is that he never just rests on his laurels, he practices everyday as if he was a beginner and not the world's greatest living tenor saxophonist. So when he lets loose on an extented solo all things are possible and the wonders never cease. Plus his backing band is not to shaby.
If you haven't already guessed, highly recommended.
