Sonny Rollins (tenor saxophone)

Over his long and distinguished career, Sonny Rollins has made many dozens of albums. Among those recorded during the 50's, Prestige's Movin's Out and Saxophone Colossus, Blue Note's A Night at the Village Vanguard, Riverside's The Sound of Sonny, and Way Out West on Contemporary qualify as all-time Rollins classics. The session for Way Out West, Rollins' first ever in California, was called for 3 a.m. to accommodate everyone's busy schedules. Sonny, who could never be accused of overstatement, announced after four hours of recording: "I'm Hot Now".
Recorded in 1957.
