Sonny Rollins had already been a regular member of the celebrated Max Roach-Clifford Brown Quintet for half a year when he entered the studio on June 22, 1956 to record Saxophone Colossus, one of his most acclaimed albums as a leader. Age 26, Rollins was already a well-known jazz figure. He had recorded some albums as a leader but, above all, he had been part of some of the most outstanding combos of the period: the Miles Davis Quintet and the Max Roach-Clifford Brown Quintet. The present album introduced his famous composition “Saint Thomas”.
