A limited-supply CD import from Japan in a high-quality paper sleeve; the perfect collector’s item.
Over his long and distinguished career, Sonny Rollins has made many dozens of albums. Among those recorded during the Fifties, Prestige's Moving Out (OJCCD-058-2) and Saxophone Colossus (OJCCD-291-2), Blue Note's A Night at the Village Vanguard, Riverside's The Sound of Sonny (OJCCD-029-2), and Way Out West on Contemporary qualify as all-time Rollins classics. The session for Way Out West, Rollins's first ever in California, was called for 3 a.m. to accommodate everyone's busy schedules. Sonny, who could never be accused of overstatement, announced after four hours of recording: "I'm hot now."
