Sonny Rollins holds the distinction of being one of the most significant and influential saxophonists since Charlie Parker, and 2006's LIVE IN EUROPE shows why. With extended explorations of tunes like "On Green Dolphin Street" and "Sonnymoon," Rollins demonstrates his ability to turn a melody upside down, inside out, and every which way with wit, economy, and dazzling technical skill. Rollins has a tendency to really open up in concert, so LIVE IN EUROPE represents that side of him as well.
