DESCRIPTION

Basically, everything you need to know about 'Saxophone Colossus' is in this fact: In 2017, it was inducted into the National Recording Registry at the Library of Congress for being historically significant. You don't need my words to sell you on the importance of this album, but here they are anyway: This record broke Sonny Rollins into the larger jazz consciousness, establishing him as one of the hottest young saxophone guns in the world in the mid-50s. Featuring one of Rollins' finest spontaneously written pieces ― "Blue 7" ― Rollins and his band walked into Van Gelder's studio and came out legends on this one.
