"Sonny Rollins, Saxophone Colossus - DCC Factory Sealed 24 Karat Gold CD"

SONNY ROLLINS - SAXOPHONE COLOSSUS - a Long Out Of Print DCC Sealed 24 Karat Limited Edition Gold CD - simply one of the Rarest Limited Edition Jazz Gold CD Pressings in existence. Please notice the unique packaging that exhibits the Gold CD and Original LP cover inside the Factory Seal. This expensive standard of quality package is only found in these 24-Karat Gold Masterpiece. One of the pivotal recordings in bringing about the wide-spread acceptance of SONNY ROLLINS as a major figure, SAXOPHONE COLOSSUS inspired critics to write scholarly analyses and fans to revel in hard swinging invention, humor, and tender strength balladry. Up to this Album, while most musicians recognize Rollins as one of the new influential forces in the Jazz of the fifties, most critics were carping at Rollins or damning him with feint praise. "St. Thomas" a traditional West Indian melody which Mal Waldron remembered as "The Carnival" was recorded by many artists after Sonny introduced it here. It remains a Jazz standard today. The contributions of Tommy Flanagan's eloquent swing, Doug Watkin's steady lift, and Max Roach's most musical accompaniment and soloing make this a landmark album. The recording engineer for this session was Rudy Van Guelder Songs also included are - YOU DON'T KNOW WHAT LOVE IS - STURODE ROAD - MORITAT (from the THREE PENNY OPERA) - BLUE 7.
