But now, I have learned that there will be no CD. Rollins, who is nothing if not self-critical, is displeased with the quality of his playing and therefore wants to keep the tapes bottled up. A true shame.
I interviewed Mr. Rollins recently, about another matter entirely, and asked him if he at least planned to perform again with McBride and Haynes (the latter, a contemporary with whom he hadn’t played since 1958!). He replied that a reunion is in the works. If that concert really does happen, book planes, trains, or buses to see and hear it.
