Sonny Rollins
East Broadway Run Down
1966

A prime example of his improvisational prowess, as well as the sheer power of his horn, East Broadway Run Down features tenor-sax giant Rollins in a stripped-down format with Elvin Jones on drums and Jimmy Garrison on bass. The absence of piano provides the space for some compelling melodic exploration, particularly on the twenty-minute title track which finds the trio joined by trumpeter Freddie Hubbard in an ebb-and-flow chase of repeated themes and sonic phantoms.
