Priceless Jazz Collection is a mid-line series GRP assembled with the intention of providing affordable introductions to several of the most popular artists on their label. Sonny Rollins isn't necessarily suited for this approach, but the collection works well, providing a reasonable introduction for curious listeners. The collection contains seven tracks that give an idea of Rollins' range, including "Three Little Words," "Alfie's Theme," "We Kiss in a Shadow," "Everything Happens to Me" and "Blessing in Disguise." Collectors will have little use for this collection, but it's a good sampler for neophytes.
