Saxophone Colossus

In my effort to continue to find more about jazz I bought Saxophone Colossus by Sonny Rollins and I cannot believe I did not have this album already. The opening song St. Thomas, with the calypso beat laid down by Max Roach, is frankly incredible. Then to the seductive You Don't Know What Love Is, onto the finger snapping Strode Rode, then his take on Mack the Knife, here called Moritat, and ends with Blue 7. This album is absolutely a must own.
