Sonny Rollins in Copenhagen 1965
Ole Olsen | Denmark | 03/27/2009
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I was present at the concert, and I have never heard Rollins better. The concert has been broadcast by the danish state radio, I taped it, and later burned it on cd, so I know every note. Many jazzpeople has tried to get the concert issued, but Rollins' wife would not allow it, no explanation why, so this dvd is a scoop.

Classic Sonny Rollins
SohoSisyphus | NYC | 12/27/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"These are landmark sessions in a very great career. In maturity, Rollins became, like Monk, a unique. His phrasing is always his own and he parses not simply the chords, but the songs themselves, which ar never lost. This is work by a master, bursting with originality and energy, and sometimes wit."

"I just hope that there is much more to come, from where this came from, just keep it coming."
