Sonny Rollins: Rollins In Holland: The 1967 Studio & Live Recordings

Three long lost sessions of jazz saxophonist Sonny Rollins will be released on Black Friday (November 27) on the 3LP set Rollins In Holland: The 1967 Studio & Live Recordings by Resonance Records and Nederlands Jazz Archief: "unissued performances with bassist Ruud Jacobs and drummer Han Bennink in May of 1967 at Vara Studio in Hilversum, the Arnhem Academy of Visual Arts, and a televised performance at the Go-Go Club in Loosdrecht". Rollin himself is quite pleased with this archival release:

I’m so happy that Resonance is putting it out because it really represents a take-no-prisoners type of music. That’s sort of what I was doing around that period of time; that was sort of Sonny Rollins then – a wham-bam-thank-you-ma’am approach. It was very much me. And I loved it and I loved playing with those guys.

3500 copies of the 3LP will be made available as a limited release. The tracks were mastered by Bernie Grundman. A 2CD version will hit the shops on December 4.
