4. Sonny Rollins- Saxophone Colossus (1956)

5 sonny rollins saxo216881This album is one of Rollins’ finest recordings. Joined by Tommy Flanagan, Doug Watkins and Max Roach, Rollins plays with a rich, round tone that complements his melodic inclinations, making him the most accessible of the post-bop musicians. Saxophone Colossus is the most successful of the late 1950s albums that made his reputation.
