    6. Sonny Boy 8:23

One of the few improvisers to justify the opportunity to "stretch out" afforded by the long-playing record, Sonny Rollins puts on an incredible display of melodic, harmonic, and rhythmic virtuosity, aided and abetted by master drummer Max Roach. The self-renewing, motivic blues, "Ee-ah," and the reinventions on the chord sequences of "Cherokee" ("B. Quick") and "Lover" ("B. Swift") are dazzling performances; and Sonny's ballad improvisations, in and around the rich, romantic baritone renditions of "Two Different Worlds" and "My Ideal" by Earl Coleman, are a perfect contrast.
