Sonny Rollins - Sonny Rollins & the Contemporary Leaders

Our Shootout Winner from 2013


A distinguished member of the Better Records Jazz Hall of Fame.

SUPERB SOUND ON BOTH SIDES! This Contemporary Green Label LP has THE BIG SOUND -- rich and so full-bodied with amazing presence and immediacy. The bass is PERFECTION -- deep, rock solid, and note-like. There’s lots of extension on the top end, letting Shelley Manne's fantastic work on the cymbals really come to life. The clarity on this copy is superb -- just listen to those leading edge transients on Sonny's sax. The guitar has the tubey qualities that we love here at Better Records -- it's warm, rich, and sweet with lots of ambience.

Product Detail


This copy has big time presence and immediacy that makes it seem as if this all-star quintet was swingin' in your living room! Both sides have A++ sound -- it's transparent and dynamic with just the right amount of bite to the sax. I don't think there's anything you could do to this music to make it sound any better than this.

Sonny is backed here by a heavy-hitting lineup of Barney Kessel, Shelley Manne, LeRoy Vinnegar and Hampton Hawes -- all favorites here at Better Records.
