Album Description

Originally released in 1962, this was tenor-saxophonist Sonny Rollins'' first recording after ending a surprising 3-year retirement. It found Rollins sounding very similar to how he had played in 1959, although he would soon start investigating freer forms. The pianoless quartet features guitarist Jim Hall, bassist Bob Cranshaw and drummer Ben Riley.

Product Notes

Widely acknowledged as the most significant and accomplished tenor saxophonist in the world, Sonny Rollins''s recording legacy is nothing short of extraordinary. Beginning as a sideman in the late-''40s, he worked with Charlie Parker, Fats Navarro, Bud Powell, Max Roach, Clifford Brown, Thelonious Monk, Art Blakey, and Miles Davis. Since recording his first date as a leader in 1954, Rollins has recorded dozens of albums for numerous labels, eventually settling in for a long stay on Milestone. The Bridge, recorded in 1962 for RCA Records, is one of Rollins''s most dramatic recordings: it marks a return from three years of self-imposed retirement and its title track is a nod to the stories that Rollins had spent much of that time practicing by himself on the Williamsburg Bridge. The lineup for The Bridge is unusual for the time, a quartet featuring guitar (Jim Hall) instead of piano. The rest of the band serves simply to frame Rollins, whose time off only improved his already awesome abilities. Along with the title track, the album''s standouts include "Without a Song" and "God Bless the Child." --Fred Goodman
