Sonny Rollins has never been one for the "high concept" approach to recording. He prefers to assemble a compatible rhythm section, adding perhaps a simpatico guest or two, and then just let the music flow. That was the strategy here, as percussionist Bill Summers and guitarist Larry Coryell join Rollins's working quartet of the time for a program notable for its variety of material and typically constant level of intensity. Coryell plays acoustic guitar on two duets with Rollins, who also features the lyricon on his atmospheric original "Tai-Chi." The focus, of course, is on the Rollins tenor saxophone, which really takes flight on two of his most memorable original compositions, "Harlem Boys" and "And Then My Love I Found You."

with Larry Coryell, Mark Soskin, Jerome Harris, Al Foster, Bill Summers
