Recorded November 3, 1957 in the Village Vanguard, NYC

Produced by Alfred Lion

Originally released as Blue Note BLP 1581

The Village Vanguard has been home to some of jazz's finest performances. Rollins' appearance at the legendary venue in 1957 proved he was one of post-bop's most inventive and agile soloists. In peak form, Rollins enlisted two different bands for the historic shows. The afternoon show featured Donald Bailey on bass and Pete La Roca on drums, while the evening show featured bassist Wilbur Ware and drummer Elvin Jones. The ensemble dazzles with tunes including "A Night in Tunisia," "Woody 'N You" and "I Can't Get Started."

His tone was full and sexy and rough and exciting on this evening in November, 1957, and so was his genius. - All About Jazz
